Using Facts Matter to Map Mental Health Status in Greater Cincinnati

In recognition of National Prevention Week, we are drawing attention to health issues related to substance abuse and prevention. National Prevention Week is an annual health observance designed to increase public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues. This year’s theme is: “Your voice. Your choice. Make a difference.”

Facts Matter is a data portal created by HealthLandscape and funded by the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati, and the Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation to support the region’s collective impact efforts. Multiple organizations contribute indicator data, which can be displayed at the county, tract, or neighborhood level.

The map below shows the region’s mental health status. Data comes from the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati/Greater Cincinnati Community Health Status Survey and reflects the quality of life or function as influenced by mental conditions.

Mapped data can also be shown in a chart or graph:
