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 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 treatment service providers. In addition, a data file derived from the survey will be used to produce a summary report providing national and state-level outcomes. The summary report and a public-use data file will be used by researchers, mental health professionals, State governments, the U.S. Congress, and the general public. The request for OMB approval will include a request to conduct an abbreviated N–MHSS-Locator survey in 2017 and 2019, and the full-scale N– MHSS in 2018.

Parent/Caregiver Pre-Test/Post-Test Survey 2. Youth Pre-Test and Post-Test Survey 3. Parent/Caregiver Interview Guide The case studies collection is part of a larger effort to evaluate the impact of the ‘‘Talk. They Hear You.’’ Campaign. These evaluations will help determine the extent to which the campaign has been successful in educating parents and caregivers nationwide about effective methods for reducing underage drinking. The Campaign is designed to educate and empower parents and caregivers to talk with children about alcohol. To prevent initiation of underage drinking, the campaign targets parents and caregivers of children aged 9–15, with the specific aims of: 1. Increasing parents’ awareness of the prevalence and risk of underage drinking 2. Equipping parents with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to prevent underage drinking 3. Increasing parents’ actions to prevent underage drinking. For this evaluation, SAMHSA intends to measure knowledge and attitudes before and after a focused campaign outreach effort in areas that have not previously had significant exposure to the campaign. Participants in the evaluation will be recruited from a middle school community, and will include parents/caregivers and students. School administrators and partnering organization(s), such as parent organizations and/or local prevention organizations will assist in the dissemination of campaign materials and data collection efforts. There will be two sites selected for the case studies— one site will serve as the experimental group and the other site will serve as the control group. The experimental group will be exposed to the ‘‘Talk. They Hear You.’’ messages using standard campaign materials and dissemination strategies, which will be coordinated through a local partner organization. The control group will not be intentionally exposed to the campaign materials. The case studies will include baseline surveys of parents/caregivers and children of middle-school age in both the experimental and control communities, followed by exposure to campaign materials in the experimental community, and post-exposure surveys of parents and children in both communities. Additionally, SAMHSA will conduct 30 interviews with parents and caregivers following the postexposure surveys at the experimental site to obtain more detailed information about the specific impact of the campaign.

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 
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-MHSS-Locator 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 treatment service providers. In addition, a data 
file derived from the survey will be used to produce a summary report 
providing national and state-level outcomes. The summary report and a 
public-use data file will be used by researchers, mental health 
professionals, State governments, the U.S. Congress, and the general 
public.
    The request for OMB approval will include a request to conduct an 
abbreviated N-MHSS-Locator survey in 2017 and 2019, and the full-scale 
N-MHSS in 2018.
    The following table summarizes the estimated annual response burden 
for the N-MHSS:
