National Behavioral Health Barometer
A report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) illuminates important trends in Americans’
behavioral health, both nationally and on a state-by-state basis.
SAMHSA’s report, the “National Behavioral Health Barometer”
(Barometer), provides data about key aspects of behavioral healthcare issues affecting American communities including rates of serious mental illness, suicidal thoughts, substance use, underage drinking, and the percentages of those who seek treatment for these disorders.
The Barometer shows this data at the national level, and for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. To see the report, click here <http://www.samhsa.gov/data/browse-report-document-type?tab=46>
