The State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) is a state-level advisory committee that provides information and guidance to policymakers and practitioners working to improve behavioral health among all Idahoans. Its members include owners of epidemiological and other data sources, representatives of agencies impacting behavioral health in Idaho, and others with data-related skills or data decision-making authority relating to behavioral health. The SEOW was established under the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) awarded to the Idaho Office of Drug Policy in 2013 and continues under the Strategic Prevention Framework Partnership for Success (SPF PFS) grant through 2023.
Idaho’s SEOW annually produces a Statewide Needs Assessment for Substance Misuse Prevention and provides online sources for certain indicators.
