Substance Use & Mental Health
As the burden of mental health and substance use rise, IHPS research helps guide policy makers around mental health and substance use healthcare.
Mental health and substance use remain stigmatized and there are gender, racial-ethnic, and economic inequities in access, use and quality of services and supports. Many services available are not based on strong empirical evidence and others do not reach quality standards, are too costly, or are not widely accepted by persons at risk.
