North Dakota Behavioral Health Data


Prevention research has illustrated the importance of using data to guide efforts in making a positive change. This assessment process involves the gathering and examination of data related to substance use and related consequences, community climate, environment and infrastructure/resources.

Based on the assessment of need, resources and readiness, we are able to pinpoint what the problems are in our state and community and identify prevention priorities on which to focus our efforts.

State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroups (SEOWs) are groups of data experts and prevention stakeholders responsible for bringing data on substance abuse and related behavioral problems to the forefront of the prevention planning process.
