What can international information tell us about mental health and substance use in the Aotearoa New Zealand population?

In the absence of up-to-date prevalence data in Aotearoa New Zealand, this report highlights current international prevalence estimates for mental health conditions and problematic substance use.

The aims of this work are to help people to understand:

  • international prevalence estimates
  • if international estimates are similar to past and present data we have in Aotearoa New Zealand
  • what international data tells us about what might be happening in Aotearoa New Zealand now, in the absence of good up-to-date data.

It is also available as an accessible Word document.
