The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a replicated data collection, ‘‘Talk.

Youth Pre-Test and Post-Test Survey 3. Parent/Caregiver Interview Guide The case study collection is part of a larger effort to evaluate the impact of the ‘‘Talk. They Hear You.’’ campaign. This evaluation 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 and other substances. To prevent initiation of underage drinking and substance use, the campaign targets parents and caregivers of children aged 9–20, with the following specific aims: 1. Increasing parents’ awareness of the prevalence and risk of underage drinking and substance use; 2. Equipping parents with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to prevent underage drinking and substance use; and 3. Increasing parents’ actions to prevent underage drinking and substance use. 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/caregiver organizations and/or local educational partner organizations will assist in the dissemination of campaign materials and data collection efforts. There will be two sites selected for the case study—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 the school and potentially a local partner organization. The control group will not be intentionally exposed to the campaign materials. The case study 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/caregivers and children in both communities. Additionally, SAMHSA will conduct 30 interviews with parents and caregivers following the post-exposure surveys at the experimental site to obtain more detailed information about the specific impact of the campaign.

Proposed Project--``Talk. They Hear You.'' Campaign Evaluation: Case 
Study (OMB No. 0930-0373)--Extension

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is requesting 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a 
replicated data collection, ``Talk. They Hear You.'' Campaign 
Evaluation: Case Study (the ``case study''). This collection includes 
three instruments:

1. Parent/Caregiver Pre-Test/Post-Test Survey
2. Youth Pre-Test and Post-Test Survey
3. Parent/Caregiver Interview Guide

    The case study collection is part of a larger effort to evaluate 
the impact of the ``Talk. They Hear You.'' campaign. This evaluation 
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 and other substances. To prevent initiation of 
underage drinking and substance use, the campaign targets parents and 
caregivers of children aged 9-20, with the following specific aims:
    1. Increasing parents' awareness of the prevalence and risk of 
underage drinking and substance use;
    2. Equipping parents with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to 
prevent underage drinking and substance use; and
    3. Increasing parents' actions to prevent underage drinking and 
substance use. 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/caregiver organizations and/or local educational partner 
organizations will assist in the dissemination of campaign materials 
and data collection efforts.
    There will be two sites selected for the case study--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 the school 
and potentially a local partner organization. The control group will 
not be intentionally exposed to the campaign materials. The case study 
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/caregivers and children 
in both communities. Additionally, SAMHSA will conduct 30 interviews 
with parents and caregivers following the post-exposure surveys at the 
experimental site to obtain more detailed information about the 
specific impact of the campaign.
