Senate Bill 126: Mental Health and Substance Abuse Public Reporting System

Summary

The Mental Health and Substance Abuse Public Reporting System collects and displays performance and outcome measures for Mental Health and Substance Use Services. The data is intended to be available for public viewing and to illicit public input into the desired mental health and substance use data elements. The Mental Health and Substance use service data is posted for public viewing every six months during the fiscal year.

Mental Health
BHS contracts with 37 Community Mental Health Centers (also known as Local Mental Health Authorities - LMHAs) to provide mental health services to adults with serious mental illness and children with severe emotional disturbance. This report provides a snapshot of how each Center is meeting the measures that provide an environment for client recovery, including supportive housing and employment. This information is included on both a comprehensive spreadsheet and individual sheets (tabs) that compare how each center is doing on these measures. Adult and child/adolescent data are included.

Substance Use Disorder
BHS contracts with more than 250 providers across the state to provide prevention, intervention, and treatment services. These services are provided in a wide array of settings, from school–based prevention services to outpatient and inpatient treatment services. For each type of service, providers are required to provide evidence of their ability to provide clients with the most effective way leading to recovery.
