We invite you to join this informational virtual workshop led by Kathy Downey Piscopo and Sam Brown from SAMHSA’s Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) to learn how to use SAMHSA data and tools to advance your behavioral health equity work. This opportunity intends to provide technical assistance to National Network to Eliminate Disparities in Behavioral Health (NNED) members (free to join) and minority-serving and under-resourced community-based organizations (CBOs). This event is a continuation of the Elevate CBOs Webinar Series, an overarching policy-driven initiative from SAMHSA’s Office of Behavioral Health Equity that began in 2021.
By attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand SAMHSA’s CBHSQ data sources, including which to use for different types of information
- Learn what kind of reports, data tables, data files, and analytic tools are available via CBHSQ webpages
- Learn how to use CBHSQ’s publicly available analysis tools to find data needed, with an emphasis on data equity information
