SMHAs use URS to compile and report annual data as part of SAMHSA’s Community Mental Health Block Grant. URS is part of an effort to use data in decision support and planning in public mental health systems and to support program accountability.
URS comprises 21 Excel tables that are developed by the Federal Government in consultation with SMHAs. Data collected from the United States and its territories include the sociodemographic characteristics of clients served by the states and territories, outcomes of care, use of selected evidence-based practices, client assessment of care, insurance status, living situation, employment status, and readmission to state and territorial psychiatric hospitals within 30 and 180 days.
Annual reports are produced every year, presenting information from a single data source.
These reports focus on providing in-depth analysis on a specific subset compared to a larger dataset.
These reports present data on a single state or territory, and they may be released as a stand-alone publication or a recurring report.
