The North Carolina Psychiatry Access Line (NC-PAL) has gone live with their interactive NC Youth Mental Health Care Dashboard!
NC-PAL examined data from Medicaid claims during a one-year period (October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018) to understand prevalence rates for behavioral health care diagnoses and treatments in North Carolina. Prevalence rates tells us the proportion of youth who have a particular characteristic. For example, you can learn about the proportion of youth with Medicaid in your county who have specific behavioral health diagnoses out of all Medicaid youth in your county. You can also compare these rates in your county to other counties and to the whole state.
