Planning and Research

The State Plan on Mental Health
Drafted annually in accordance with the Community Mental Health Block Grant, outlines the direction the statewide mental health system will take during the upcoming year. The Mental Health Services Unit works closely with the regional human service centers, consumers and their families, private mental health providers, tribal representatives, and other stakeholders in developing the State Plan.
The North Dakota Mental Health Information Enhancement Plan
Seeks to improve the availability and use of data by managers and division directors within the Department of Human Services in decision making and planning efforts. It is also designed to establish a performance monitoring system for the public mental health service system in North Dakota.
The Comprehensive Statewide Plan for Substance Abuse Prevention
is included in the North Dakota Commission on Drug and Alcohol Abuse Comprehensive Three - Year Plan for Prevention, Treatment and Enforcement. The Division has contracted with eight regional and four tribal area Regional Prevention Coordination entities within lead agencies across North Dakota to build comprehensive community coalitions, provide technical assistance and develop strategic plans for implementation science-based model prevention programs and activities that will prevent the abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
The Demand and Treatment Needs Assessment Studies
Currently comprised of two studies (the Telephone Household Survey and the Survey on Alcohol and Other Drugs), are designed to assess the substance abuse system needs in North Dakota and develop a prevention plan for the state.
Treatment Outcomes Performance Pilot Studies (TOPPS)
Examines outcomes resulting from addiction treatment received at the North Dakota State Hospital. Results of the study will be used in planning for future service delivery given the changing nature of our rural areas.
