Data Shorts, a new project released by the Mental Hygiene Administration (MHA) in collaboration with the University of Maryland, Systems Evaluation Center (SEC). Its main goal is to provide concise behavioral health data and analysis that can be used by the various stakeholders. The aim of Data Shorts is to provide the reader with data related to behavioral health efforts scheduled throughout the fiscal year. For example, September has been designated by SAMHSA as Recovery Month. The debut issue of Data Shorts is related to MHA’s Outcomes Measurement System (OMS) and Recovery. Future issues will feature data on suicide, veteran’s affairs and smoking.
