BEHAVIORAL HEALTH BAROMETER: UNITED STATES, 2014 [25 January 2015]

[full-text, 30 pages]

 

This is the second edition of the Behavioral Health Barometer: United States, one of a series of state and

national reports that provide a snapshot of behavioral health in the United States. The reports present a

set of substance use and mental health indicators as measured through data collection efforts sponsored

by SAMHSA, including the National Survey on Drug Use and Health and the National Survey of

Substance Abuse Treatment Services. This array of indicators provides a unique overview of the nation’s

behavioral health at a point in time as well as a mechanism for tracking change and trends over time. As

new data become available, indicators highlighted in these reports will be updated to reflect the current

state of the science and incorporate new measures of interest. The Behavioral Health Barometers will

provide critical information to a variety of audiences in support of SAMHSA’s mission of reducing the

impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities.

 

This national report, along with a Behavioral Health Barometer for each State and the District of

Columbia, will be published on a regular basis as part of SAMHSA’s larger behavioral health quality

improvement approach.
