VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:16 Sep 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 January 31, 2020. 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 information in the N–MHSS is needed to assess the nature and extent of these resources, to identify gaps in services, and to provide a database for treatment referrals. The request for OMB approval will include a request to conduct the N– MHSS and the between-survey updates in 2020, 2021, and 2022. This update is a procedure for collecting services data from newly identified facilities between main cycles of the survey and will be used to improve the listing of treatment facilities in the online Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator. 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 N–MHSS in 2018. A full-scale N–MHSS will be conducted in 2020 and 2022 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. An abbreviated N– MHSS (N–MHSS-Locator Survey) will be conducted in 2021 only to update the information about facilities in the online Locator. Three small surveys are proposed for adding new facilities to the online Locator as they become known to SAMHSA. Both the 2021 N–MHSS- PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 2018 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 2020, 2021, and 2022; 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 a full-scale N–MHSS in 2020 and 2022, and an abbreviated N–MHSS-Locator survey in 2021. The following table summarizes the estimated annual response burden for the I–BHS and the N–MHSS: E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1

Proposed Project: Voluntary Customer Satisfaction Surveys To Implement 
Executive Order 12862 in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 
Administration (SAMHSA)--(OMB No. 0930-0197)--Extension

    SAMHSA provides significant services directly to the public, 
including treatment providers and State substance abuse and mental 
health agencies, through a range of mechanisms, including publications, 
training, meetings, technical assistance and websites. Many of these 
services are focused on information dissemination activities. The 
purpose of this submission is to extend the existing generic approval 
for such surveys.
    The primary use for information gathered is to identify strengths 
and weaknesses in current service provisions by SAMHSA and to make 
improvements that are practical and feasible. Several of the customer 
satisfaction surveys expected to be implemented under this approval 
will provide data for measurement of program effectiveness under the 
Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). Information from these 
customer surveys will be used to plan and redirect resources and 
efforts to improve or maintain a high quality of service to health care 
providers and members of the public. Focus groups may be used to 
develop the survey questionnaire in some instances.
