National Behavioral Health Barometer

SAMHSA has released a new report providing data about key behavioral health issues including rates of serious mental illness and substance use, and the percentages of those who seek treatment for these disorders. The report shows the data at a national level as well as for each of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia.

For instance, the Barometer shows more people are getting the help they need in some crucial areas. The number of people receiving treatment for a substance use problem has increased six percent from 2009 to 2013.
