Missouri Behavioral Health Epidemiology Workgroup
Welcome to the website of the Missouri Behavioral Health Epidemiology Workgroup (MO-BHEW). This group represents state agencies and universities that share an interest in data on substance abuse, mental health, and other behavioral health. The workgroup is supported through funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Prevention.
Mission and Purpose of the MO-BHEW
- Create a system to collect, monitor, integrate, and analyze substance abuse and mental health data to produce a comprehensive and accurate picture of behavioral health issues in Missouri and our communities.
- Disseminate information to state and community agencies, decision-makers, and the public.
- Inform and guide behavioral health prevention policy, program development, and evaluation.
Data Website Operational
The MO-BHEW has completed the first phase of a website that provides access to a variety of Missouri behavioral health data. A querying tool allows users to select and compare indicators, subpopulations, time periods, and geographies. Data results are displayed as a chart which can be easily inserted into other work products or can be downloaded as a table for further manipulation. Currently available datasets include Missouri Student Survey, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, substance abuse and mental health treatment, problem indicators reported by state agencies, and census population estimates.
