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.

Also, a series of questions on crisis services were added to the survey. The N–MHSS will also be collecting information on facilities providing services to persons experiencing first episode psychosis (FEP), which was not asked in previous versions of the survey.

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-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:

  facilities are identified.
\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 Locator.

    To stay current with the field and to collect policy relevant 
information, SAMHSA will add a series of questions about facilities 
offering pharmacotherapy for the treatment of serious mental illness 
(SMI), in particular information on the first- and second-generation 
antipsychotics used by these facilities. Also, a series of questions on 
crisis services were added to the survey. The N-MHSS will also be 
collecting information on facilities providing services to persons 
experiencing first episode psychosis (FEP), which was not asked in 
previous versions of the survey. In consultation with experts in the 
field, some categories and wording were updated to reflect current 
terminology in the field.
