US Mental Health Survey

CBHSQ-Data-Review

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), collected data from 2008 to 2012. The survey includes an overwhelming amount of information. From what I could tell, the most significant statistical variances were between the sexes and by age groups. I am simply posting the bar charts from the survey showing those results. The survey’s goal is to assess the presence of selected mental disorders. The Survey’s Appendix provides tables of raw data, including family income.

    What a lot of work you’ve put into this… I notice substance abuse seems to be the greatest ‘increase’… but then it seems to be so commonplace now doesn’t it? Diane

      It was commonplace in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, too. When I was in middle school/junior high in the 70s, I knew kids who sold and took drugs.
