The average duration of the follow-up survey is estimated to be 30 minutes. Participation is voluntary. Data collection will provide important insights into the relationship between HIV risk behaviors and psychiatric illness. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. This project will collect data from clients using brief surveys administered on a voluntary basis. Collection of data will provide information on client demographics; current behaviors that may facilitate HIV transmission, including sexual and drug-use behaviors; current psychiatric symptoms, determined using brief rating scales; access and barriers to HIV testing, prevention, and treatment services; and adherence to psychiatric and medical treatment regimens. CDC is requesting approval for a 3-year clearance for data collection. Data will be collected in 4 community mental health sites. CDC estimates that an average of 900 clients will be asked to participate at each site annually and that 80% will accept, resulting in 2,880 ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Type of form Average number of respondents per annum Average number of responses per respondent Average burden per response (Hours) Clinic Patient Initial Survey ..............................................................................
