SAMHSA's Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality is pleased to announce its first Behavioral Health Data Users Conference. The conference will include a series of plenary, discussion, and hands-on training sessions on how to use SAMHSA's survey data collections, including:
- Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN)
- National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH)
- National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS)
- Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS)
SAMHSA's Data Users Conference will immediately follow the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) 2012 National Conference on Health Statistics, fostering synergy and networking opportunities for both groups of data users. On August 8, the two conferences will join for collaborative sessions.
Those interested in learning more about SAMHSA's mental health and substance use data should attend. Potential participants include State and local mental health and substance abuse officials, Federal Government staff, mental health/substance abuse service providers, mental health/substance abuse researchers, and representatives of advocacy and consumer organizations.
