Last week, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration released the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The annual survey is the nation’s primary resource for data on mental health and substance use among Americans. 

The survey results show that substance misuse and mental illness continue to be major problems for Americans and demand continued attention and focus across all American communities. The data also reflect impressive progress on the nation’s opioid crisis. 

A video presentation of the data findings by Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use Elinore F. McCance-Katz, MD, PhD, is available here
