To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276– 1243. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Sep 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Proposed Project: National Mental Health Services Survey (N–MHSS) (OMB No. 0930–0119)—Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) is requesting a revision to the National Mental Health Services Survey (N– MHSS) (OMB No. 0930–0119), which expires on February 28, 2017. The N– MHSS provides annual national and state-level data on the number and characteristics of mental health treatment facilities in the United States and biennial national and state-level data on the number and characteristics of persons treated in these facilities. The N–MHSS will provide updated information about facilities for SAMHSA’s online Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator (see: https:// findtreatment.samhsa.gov), which was last updated with information from the abbreviated N–MHSS (N–MHSS-Locator Survey) in 2015. An abbreviated N– MHSS (N–MHSS-Locator Survey) will be conducted in 2017 and 2019 to update the information about facilities in the online Locator. A full-scale N– MHSS will be conducted in 2018 to PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collect (1) information about facilities needed for updating the online Locator, such as the facility name and address, specific services offered, and special client groups served and (2) additional information about client counts and the demographics of persons treated in these facilities. Three small surveys are proposed for adding new facilities to the online Locator as they become known to SAMHSA. Both the 2017 N–MHSSLocator Survey and the addition of new facilities to the online Locator will use the same N–MHSS-Locator Survey instrument. This request for a revision seeks to change the content of the currently approved abbreviated N–MHSS (i.e., N– MHSS-Locator) survey instrument, and the previously approved 2014 and 2016 full-scale N–MHSS (OMB No. 0930– 0119) to accommodate two related N– MHSS activities: (1) Collection of information from the total N–MHSS universe of mental health treatment facilities during 2017, 2018, and 2019; and (2) collection of information on newly identified facilities throughout the year as they are identified so that new facilities can quickly be added to the online Locator. The survey mode for both data collection activities will be web with telephone follow-up. A paper questionnaire will also be available to facilities who request one. The database resulting from the N– MHSS will be used to update SAMHSA’s online Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator and to produce an electronic version of a national directory of mental health facilities, for use by the general public, behavioral health professionals, and E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
