Healthy Minds, Healthy Lives of Pike County Survey

Healthy Minds, Healthy Lives of Pike County is a collaborative partnership of differing organizations within our community. The mission of the partnership is to increase the importance, knowledge and ability of individuals who have mental health needs to seek help. The hope is that through increasing these initiatives, individuals and families of individuals living with mental health needs will therefore have the ability to lead high quality, meaningful lives.

We ask that you please take the time to answer our survey. These questions provide participants with an opportunity to be heard and a chance to advise the partnership of your own individual needs. Your opinion matters and may help to serve as a catalyst for change within our community, providing the partnership with the much needed insight and knowledge that are needed to strategically design programs and services catered to residents’ individual needs. Participants will remain anonymous and information will remain strictly confidential. Learn more about Healthy Lives, Healthy Minds of Pike County.

Pike County Health Department Now Offers Flu Shots & Mist During Walk-In Hours

The Pike County Health Department is urging residents to protect themselves, as well as others this flu season by being proactive and getting vaccinated.

Research has proven that the single best way to prevent the flu is through receiving a flu vaccine every year. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older receive an annual influenza (flu) vaccination. Due to this need the Pike County Health Department strongly urges residents to take advantage of receiving this vaccination and will now be offering the vaccinations during office walk-in hours (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8a-12p & 1-4p.)
