SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Summary of Information Collection

    As part of the Federal Partners Anti-Stigma Working Group, we 
propose a survey research study to determine the most and least 
effective techniques used to combat stigma related to mental illness. 
We plan to send letters to anti-stigma groups asking them to take part 
in an online survey. This survey will query the organizations about 
their outreach methods and the perceived effectiveness of their 
methods.
    We plan to use the web-based tool Surveymonkey to reduce the cost 
and burden on the participants and ourselves. The data will be put into 
a statistical program and analyzed. We will use frequency analysis to 
see if there are any anti-stigma efforts that are identified as 
particularly effective or non-effective. Depending on the number of 
responses, we may use a regression analysis to identify the best 
predictors of a successful program. We will use statistical power 
analysis and hypothesis testing to determine the robustness of our 
results as well as the chance for type I and type II errors. We may 
also do more ad hoc analysis depending on the number and types of 
responses.
    This study will fill a gap in the scientific literature. A recent 
search using the PsychInfo database showed no published studies or 
dissertations that surveyed multiple anti-stigma campaigns in the US 
seeking to identify best practices for reducing stigma.
    We anticipate the risk to participants to be minimal. Responses 
will be shown in aggregate format only; there will be no personally 
identifying information published.
