SAMHSA Releases New NSDUH Data

New National Report Focuses on Behavioral Health, Including Opioid Misuse

Today, SAMHSA released the latest findings from the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), which provides the estimates on substance use and mental health in the United States, including the misuse of opioids. In 2016, there were 11.8 million people ages 12 or older who misused opioids in the past year. The majority of those individuals misused pain relievers rather than used heroin; 11.5 million people misused pain relievers and 948,000 were heroin users. Additionally, the prevalence of serious mental illness, depression, and suicidal thoughts has increased among young adults over recent years. The report also includes data about opioid use disorder, substance use treatment, marijuana use, and mental illness. The complete findings of the report are available online. SAMHSA will be releasing additional 2016 NSDUH reports on adult substance use treatment and mental health services on September 21 and substance use initiation and risk perceptions on September 28.

Details of the NSDUH findings will be shared during a press conference on Thursday, September 7. Members of the public are invited to join the live webcast of the event beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern time.

How can shelters that serve families and survivors of domestic violence maintain a low-barrier environment that prioritizes safety for participants and staff?

This webinar will address how to re-tool your shelter's rules, expectations, policies, and procedures. We'll be joined by two shelter providers to learn about how they have shifted their philosophy and operations to incorporate a low-barrier model based on Housing First principles.

Join us! You can register here.

This is the fourth installment in the Alliance’s Emergency Shelter Learning Series. Please visit our Resources Page for more tools and information on this topic.

NEW INTERACTIVE MAP SHOWS RATE OF HOMELESSNESS IN MAJOR METRO AREAS
8c143745-a9c3-41fc-8bfe-f199638ae6a7.png
The majority of people experiencing homelessness on a given night are in the nation’s 25 most populous metropolitan areas. A new interactive resource from the Alliance’s Homelessness Research Institute allows users to take a market-by-market view of homelessness in each area.

Users can analyze a variety of data in each market, including the total rate of homelessness; and the size of the sheltered and unsheltered populations for family, individual, youth, veteran, and chronically homeless populations. Because counts of people experiencing homelessness do not generally align with metropolitan areas, these estimates provide a helpful way of comparing between major metro areas.

Written by Guest blogger, Joshua Bamberger, MD, MPH, University of California, San Francisco; Chief Medical Consultant at Mercy Housing In recent months, the intense healthcare debate has often centered around our individual values: how much autonomy should we have to control our healthcare finances?

Every day vulnerable people fleeing domestic violence are denied shelter.  It's not because they don't need it or because they are ineligible. It is simply because there is no room. Domestic violence programs are designed to provide safe refuge and support to people escaping violence.  Some require the safety of a crisis housing program for […]
