Child & Family Mental Health Tracker

Mental health is part of everyday life and overall health in all stages of life, from keiki to kupuna, and includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. While positive mental health has been linked to optimism, self-esteem, and healthy relationships1, mental health complications can greatly impact physical health, putting an individual at risk for other health conditions.2  The COVID-19 pandemic has also heightened the interest in mental health issues.

The Child & Family Mental Health Tracker brings together information, in an easy-to-review format, from national and state population-based surveys focusing on measures that impact women, children, and families. Healthy People 2030 targets are provided when available. It is brought to you by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health Family Health Services Division and the Pediatric Mental Health Care Access program.

This tracker contains over 40 health indicators, which are organized into the following groups:

  • Depression and Suicide
  • Child Mental Health Conditions & Treatment
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Parent Mental Health
  • Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • Alcohol and Drugs
  • Bullying
  • Protective Factors
  • Access to Mental Health Services

For each indicator, you can read how it is defined and collected, and view comparison data and trends through charts and tables.
