New Behavioral Health Barometer Reports Provide
In-Depth, State-Level Data

SAMHSA released the fourth edition of its Behavioral Health Barometer state reports. These reports include data about key issues such as the prevalence of substance use, serious thoughts of suicide, serious mental illness, and treatment, for each state and the District of Columbia. The findings are presented by age, gender, racial and ethnic categories, poverty status, and health insurance status. The reports can assist policymakers and public health providers in targeting programs and interventions to reduce the impact of mental and substance use disorders on America's communities.

A new report from the Coalition for Juvenile Justice and its partners draws on expertise from across the country to help ensure that young people do not experience homelessness as a result of being involved in the justice system, and alternatively, that experiencing homelessness does not lead young people into contact with the justice system.
