Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–1243. Proposed Project: 2008 National Survey of Mental Health Treatment Facilities (NSMHTF) (OMB No. 0930–0119)— Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) will conduct a 2008 NSMHTF. This national survey represents a re-design of the biennial Survey of Mental Health Organizations (SMHO) last conducted in 2004 under OMB No. 0930–0119. Instead of surveying each mental health organization as a whole, the 2008 NSMHTF will survey all of the mental health treatment locations. These separate mental health service locations are called facilities, in contrast to mental health organizations, which may include multiple facilities (service locations). This survey will be (a) a 100 percent enumeration of all known mental health treatment facilities nationwide, (b) more consumer-oriented in describing services available at each facility location, and (c) patterned after SAMHSA’s Office of Applied Studies National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (OMB No. 0930– 0106). The 2008 NSMHTF will utilize one questionnaire for all mental health treatment facility types including hospitals, residential treatment centers and outpatient clinics. The information collected will include intake telephone numbers for services, types of services offered and acceptable forms of payment, emergency hotline numbers, facility caseload, and facility bed counts, if applicable. All treatment facilities will be contacted by telephone prior to the mailing to verify their eligibility, and facility type. The resulting database will be used to provide both state and national estimates of facility types and their patient caseloads. Information from the 2008 survey will also be used to update the National Mental Health Information Center’s facility locator for consumers. In addition, data derived from the survey will be published by CMHS in Data Highlights, in Mental Health, United States, and in professional journals such as Psychiatric Services and the American Journal of Psychiatry. The publication Mental Health, United States is used by the general public, State governments, the U.S. Congress, university researchers, and other health care professionals.

Proposed Project: 2008 National Survey of Mental Health Treatment 
Facilities (NSMHTF) (OMB No. 0930-0119)--Revision

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) will conduct a 2008 
NSMHTF. This national survey represents a re-design of the biennial 
Survey of Mental Health Organizations (SMHO) last conducted in 2004 
under OMB No. 0930-0119. Instead of surveying each mental health 
organization as a whole, the 2008 NSMHTF will survey all of the mental 
health treatment locations. These separate mental health service 
locations are called facilities, in contrast to mental health 
organizations, which may include multiple facilities (service 
locations). This survey will be (a) a 100 percent enumeration of all 
known mental health treatment facilities nationwide, (b) more consumer-
oriented in describing services available at each facility location, 
and (c) patterned after SAMHSA's Office of Applied Studies National 
Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (OMB No. 0930-0106).
    The 2008 NSMHTF will utilize one questionnaire for all mental 
health treatment facility types including hospitals, residential 
treatment centers and outpatient clinics. The information collected 
will include intake telephone numbers for services, types of services 
offered and acceptable forms of payment, emergency hotline numbers, 
facility caseload, and facility bed counts, if applicable. All 
treatment facilities will be contacted by telephone prior to the 
mailing to verify their eligibility, and facility type.
    The resulting database will be used to provide both state and 
national estimates of facility types and their patient caseloads. 
Information from the 2008 survey will also be used to update the 
National Mental Health Information Center's facility locator for 
consumers. In addition, data derived from the survey will be published 
by CMHS in Data Highlights, in Mental Health, United States, and in 
professional journals such as Psychiatric Services and the American 
Journal of Psychiatry. The publication Mental Health, United States is
