The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has launched its Child Behavioral Health dashboard.

The information shared through this publicly available tool will help the department, as well as behavioral health providers, policymakers and stakeholders, to identify and address gaps and disparities in behavioral health services for children.

The Child Behavioral Health dashboard builds a data and analysis infrastructure across child-serving sectors to provide a more complete picture of the state of behavioral health in North Carolina.

The dashboard tracks key behavioral health indicators, including the percentage of children who have been diagnosed with depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and substance use disorder.

An important feature of the new dashboard is users can drill down the data by geography, race, ethnicity, age and gender to provide additional visibility into child behavioral health in underserved populations.
