Public Behavioral Health Agencies
Since 1987, NRI has been the only national organization working with state agencies, the Federal Government, and other entities to define, collect, and analyze data on public behavioral health systems. NRI has national and state-level information on over seven million consumers served by state behavioral health systems each year and collects data on the more than $38 billion expended financing these services. NRI evaluates these data on national, state, and regional levels to help states better plan, budget, and evaluate the delivery of their services. NRI maintains databases about the structure, service systems, emerging policy issues, consumer issues, and research and evaluation activities of state behavioral health systems. Our Profiles System’s databases capture this information and are accessible on our website here.
