Behavioral Health, United States, formerly Mental Health, United States, is issued biennially by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The scope of the latest volume in this series includes information on substance use disorders, which frequently co-occur with mental health disorders. This larger perspective on behavioral health will help strengthen the series' utility as a key resource for decision making in a changing and challenging health care landscape.
The series serves as a comprehensive resource for behavioral health statistics for the Nation, compiling information from a diverse set of data sources, including national-level surveys, journal articles, online tools, and other publications. The volumes present national estimates on numerous aspects of behavioral health, including the prevalence of mental health and substance use disorders; the number of people treated for those disorders and the types of treatment received; the number of beds, providers, and facilities in which treatment is offered; and spending on mental health and substance abuse treatment.
