Statistics links

To complement the work of the Centre of Excellence in terms of the evidence mapping project and the creation of evidence summary resources, there are times when what is needed is data on prevalence rates and burden of disease in young people with mental and substance use disorders. We have created a list of links to assist your search for such data and would welcome your feedback if there are reports or additional documents that could be added to this list
