Proposed Project: Survey of Current and Alumni SAMHSA Fellows of the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) (OMMB No. 0930–0304)— REINSTATEMENT sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SAMHSA is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the conduct of surveys of current and Alumni MFP Fellows. This survey would gather information about current and Alumni MFP Fellows that will help SAMHSA meet its responsibilities under the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act for gathering, analyzing, and interpreting information about government-funded programs such as the MFP. In 1973, in response to a substantial lack of ethnic and racial minorities in the mental health professions, the Center for Minority Health at the National Institute of Mental Health established the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). Since its move to SAMHSA in 1992, the MFP has continued to facilitate the entry of minority graduate students and psychiatric residents into mental health careers and has increased the number of psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and social work professionals trained to provide mental health and substance abuse services to minority groups. The MFP, in turn, offers sustained grants to six national behavioral health professional associations: The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, the American Nurses Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the Council on Social Work Education, and, as of August 2012, the National Board for Certified Counselors and Affiliates. Additional associations, such as the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium and the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, are expected to join the program later this year. Others may join in future years. The MFP is supported by funds from all three SAMHSA centers: The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, and the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. SAMHSA’s CMHS has funded the development of the MFP surveys. To assess the performance of the MFP, SAMHSA is requesting OMB approval for the conducting of a survey of current and Alumni MFP Fellows. This survey would gather information about current and Alumni MFP Fellows that will help SAMHSA meet its responsibilities under the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act for gathering, analyzing, and interpreting information about government-funded programs such as the MFP. This package requests approval of two survey instruments (to be sent to approximately 1.300 Current and Alumni Fellows with an expected response rate of 788 respondents).

Proposed Project: Survey of Current and Alumni SAMHSA Fellows of the 
Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) (OMMB No. 0930-0304)--REINSTATEMENT

    SAMHSA is requesting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval 
for the conduct of surveys of current and Alumni MFP Fellows. This 
survey would gather information about current and Alumni MFP Fellows 
that will help SAMHSA meet its responsibilities under the Government 
Performance and Results Modernization Act for gathering, analyzing, and 
interpreting information about government-funded programs such as the 
MFP.
    In 1973, in response to a substantial lack of ethnic and racial 
minorities in the mental health professions, the Center for Minority 
Health at the National Institute of Mental Health established the 
Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). Since its move to SAMHSA in 1992, 
the MFP has continued to facilitate the entry of minority graduate 
students and psychiatric residents into mental health careers and has 
increased the number of psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and social 
work professionals trained to provide mental health and substance abuse 
services to minority groups. The MFP, in turn, offers sustained grants 
to six national behavioral health professional associations: The 
American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, the American 
Nurses Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American 
Psychological Association, the Council on Social Work Education, and, 
as of August 2012, the National Board for Certified Counselors and 
Affiliates. Additional associations, such as the International 
Certification and Reciprocity Consortium and the National Association 
for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, are expected to join the 
program later this year. Others may join in future years.
    The MFP is supported by funds from all three SAMHSA centers: The 
Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), the Center for Substance 
Abuse Treatment, and the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. 
SAMHSA's CMHS has funded the development of the MFP surveys.
    To assess the performance of the MFP, SAMHSA is requesting OMB 
approval for the conducting of a survey of current and Alumni MFP 
Fellows. This survey would gather information about current and Alumni 
MFP Fellows that will help SAMHSA meet its responsibilities under the 
Government Performance and Results Modernization Act for gathering, 
analyzing, and interpreting information about government-funded 
programs such as the MFP.
    This package requests approval of two survey instruments (to be 
sent to approximately 1.300 Current and Alumni Fellows with an expected 
response rate of 788 respondents). Two online (Internet based) surveys 
(with the option for a hard copy mailed through the U.S. Postal 
Service) will be used with the following stakeholders in the MFP:
    1. Current SAMHSA MFP Fellows currently receiving support during 
their doctoral-level training or psychiatric residency will be asked 
about their experiences in the MFP (from recruitment into the program 
through their participation in the various activities provided by the 
Grantees).
    2. MFP Alumni who participated in the MFP during the time the 
program was administered by SAMHSA will be asked about their previous 
experiences as Fellows in the MFP and also about their subsequent 
involvement and leadership in their professions.
    None of the data collected in the surveys will be redundant with 
any existing reporting requirements or data sources. Survey data will 
be obtained to assess the following measures:
    1. Completing the Fellowship Program. Data on the completion of MFP 
goals, median and average of time to complete Fellowship goals, and the 
number of mentors, total mentored hours, and helpfulness of mentorship.
    2. Employment of Past Fellows. Data on the initial type of 
employment to include employment in the substance abuse or mental 
health field in the year after completion of the MFP goals, type of 
employment situation categories (academia, clinical, etc., by private/
public organization), and focus of work on underserved youth and 
elderly in urban and/or rural settings.
    3. Current Employment Position. Data on current employment, 
including employment in the substance abuse or mental health field in 
the year after completion of the MFP Fellowship goals, type of 
employment situation categories (academia, clinical, etc., by private/
public organization), and focus of work on underserved youth and 
elderly in urban and/or rural settings.
    4. Improving Skills and Knowledge. Data on the number of 
certifications and licensures obtained by Fellows and median and 
average number of continuing education hours credited.
    5. Number of Contributions to the Field. Data on the number of 
presentations at national meetings, professional publications, and 
national, state, or local honors or citations.

shown below:
