Proposed Project: SAMHSA Recovery Measurement Pilot Study—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) is proposing a pilot test of its Recovery Measure. As part of its strategic initiative to support recovery from mental health and substance use disorders, SAMHSA has been working to develop a standard measure of recovery that can be used as part of its grantee performance reporting activities. This project will assess the usability and psychometric properties of the proposed tool among a voluntary group of 2–3 SAMHSA grantees. SAMHSA has developed a short 20-item instrument that has been designed to capture all four of SAMHSA’s proposed dimensions of recovery—health, home, purpose, and community. This measure is comprised of questions from the World Health Organization’s Quality of Life tool (WHO QOL 8) and SAMHSA’s existing set of Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures. Data will be collected at two time points—at client intake and at six-months postintake. These are two points in time during which SAMHSA grantees routinely collect data on the individuals participating in their programs. Approval of these items by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will allow SAMHSA to further refine the Recovery Measure developed for this project. It will also help determine whether the Recovery Measure is added to SAMHSA’s set of required performance measurement tools designed to aid in tracking recovery among clients receiving services from the Agency’s funded programs. Based on current funding and planned fiscal year 2014 notice of funding announcements the following SAMHSA grantee programs will be selected to participate in this pilot study: Behavioral Health Treatment Court Collaborative (BHTCC); Cooperative Agreements to Benefit Homeless Individuals (CABHI); and the Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI). Data collected will be used by individuals at three different levels: the SAMHSA administrator and staff, the Center administrators and government project officers, and grantees.

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) intends to continue to conduct a multi-site assessment for the Mental Health Care Provider Education in HIV/AIDS Program. The education programs funded under this cooperative agreement are designed to disseminate knowledge of the psychological and neuropsychiatric sequelae of HIV/AIDS to both traditional (e.g., psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, primary care physicians, medical students, and social workers) and non-traditional (e.g., clergy, and alternative health care workers) first-line providers of mental health services, in particular to providers in minority communities. The multi-site assessment is designed to assess the effectiveness of particular training curricula, document the integrity of training delivery formats, and assess the effectiveness of the various training delivery formats. Analyses will assist CMHS in documenting the numbers and types of traditional and non-traditional mental health providers accessing training; the content, nature and types of training participants receive; and the extent to which trainees experience knowledge, skill and attitude gains/changes as a result of training attendance. The multisite data collection design uses a twotiered data collection and analytic strategy to collect information on (1) the organization and delivery of training, and (2) the impact of training on participants’ knowledge, skills and abilities. Minor changes to the feedback form instruments are requested based on based on a review and assessment of participant feedback form data collected over the past two years of the contract. CMHS identified some outdated and rarely-used response options for all participant response forms and the session reporting form and removed these items from the individual data collection tools.

Proposed Project: SAMHSA Recovery Measurement Pilot Study--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) 
is proposing a pilot test of its Recovery Measure. As part of its 
strategic initiative to support recovery from mental health and 
substance use disorders, SAMHSA has been working to develop a standard 
measure of recovery that can be used as part of its grantee performance 
reporting activities.
    This project will assess the usability and psychometric properties 
of the proposed tool among a voluntary group of 2-3 SAMHSA grantees. 
SAMHSA has developed a short 20-item instrument that has been designed 
to capture all four of SAMHSA's proposed dimensions of recovery--
health, home, purpose, and community. This measure is comprised of 
questions from the World Health Organization's Quality of Life tool 
(WHO QOL 8) and SAMHSA's existing set of Government Performance and 
Results Act (GPRA) measures. Data will be collected at two time

developed for this project. It will also help determine whether the 
Recovery Measure is added to SAMHSA's set of required performance 
measurement tools designed to aid in tracking recovery among clients
