Some of these items (i.e., q4, q7, and q8) are modified versions of instruments validated by Chinman et al. (2008). The revisions were necessary to better align the data gathered to the short-term and long-term outcomes of the Communities Talk activities for organizers, specifically: jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 Short-Term • Increase staff’s perceived threat of UAD to residents of the communities; • Increase staff’s knowledge related to using evidence-based approaches to carry out future UAD drinking prevention activities; • Increase staff’s perceived efficacy of Communities Talk to enhance UAD prevention in the community; • Increase staff’s skills related to using evidence-based approaches to carry out future UAD prevention activities, specifically share information about UAD with others host meetings or discussion groups; create committees, task forces, advisory boards, or other action groups; build coalitions; develop strategic plans; and advocate for policies • Increase staff’s self-efficacy related to using evidence-based approaches to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:58 Jan 18, 2022 Jkt 256001 carry out future UAD prevention activities; and • Increase staff’s intention related to using evidence-based approaches to carry out future UAD prevention activities. Long-Term • Increase staff’s use of evidencebased approaches to carry out future UAD prevention activities. While completing the initial Organizer Survey, staff of CommunityBased Organizations and Institutions of Higher Education can opt in to be contacted 1 year later. If they do so, they will receive an invitation to complete the same online questionnaire 1 year later. This will enable SAMHSA to determine how organizers might have progressed toward the aforementioned short- and long-term outcomes. Note that the Organizer Survey (see Attachment 1) has replaced the Organizer Survey—6 month Follow-Up. This change enables SAMHSA to compare responses between the initial and follow-up time periods (e.g., and thus determine whether the same skills have increased or decreased over time). SAMHSA/CSAP will be responsible for collecting, compiling, analyzing, and reporting on information requested through these surveys. The Participant Survey has been discontinued in alignment with SAMHSA’s focus on organizers as the target audience of Communities Talk activities. SAMHSA supports nationwide Communities Talk activities every other year. Collecting data on each round of Communities Talk activities and using this information to inform policy and measure impact connects with SAMHSA’s Strategic Plan FY2019– FY2023, specifically ‘‘Objective 3.2: Expand community engagement around PO 00000 Frm 00139 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery’’ (SAMHSA, 2018). Communities Talk activities are intended to work at the grassroots level to raise awareness of the public health dangers of UAD and to engage communities in evidence-based prevention. Notably, Communities Talk activities provide a forum for communities to discuss ways they can best prevent UAD by reducing the availability of alcohol and by creating community norms that discourage demand. SAMHSA will use the information collected to document the implementation efforts of this nationwide initiative, determine if the federally sponsored Communities Talk activities lead to additional activities within the community that are aimed at preventing and reducing UAD, identify what these activities may possibly include, and help plan for future rounds of Communities Talk events. SAMHSA intends to post online a summary document of each round of Communities Talk activities and present findings at national conferences attended by CBOs and IHEs that have hosted these activities and might host future activities. Similarly, SAMHSA plans to share findings with the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking. Agencies within this committee encourage their grantees to participate as the activity hosts. Additionally, the information collected will support performance measurement for SAMHSA programs under the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA). Data Collection Component SAMHSA/CSAP will use a web-based method, such as Voxco, to collect data through the Organizer Survey. The webbased application will comply with the E:\FR\FM\19JAN1.SGM 19JAN1 2885 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 12 / Wednesday, January 19, 2022 / Notices requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act to permit accessibility to people with disabilities. From February 2022 to April 2022, the Organizer Survey—Initial will be completed by an estimated 500 Communities Talk activity organizers and will require only one response per respondent. It will take an average of 10 minutes (0.167 hours) to review the instructions and complete the survey. Similarly, from February 2023 to April 2023, the Organizer Survey—Follow-up will be completed by an estimated 500 Communities Talk activity organizers and will require only one response per respondent. It will take an average of 10 minutes (0.167 hours) to review the instructions and complete the survey. This burden estimate is based on comments from three 2019 Communities Talk activity organizers who reviewed the survey and provided comments on how long it would take them to complete it.

Project: Mental and Substance Use Disorders Prevalence Study (MDPS) Grant Funded by SAMHSA, Grant Number H79FG000030 SAMHSA is requesting from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to conduct recruitment activities and clinical interviews with household respondents and nonhousehold facilities and respondents as part of the Mental and Substance Use Disorders Prevalence Study (MDPS) pilot program. Activities conducted will include: A household rostering and mental health screening of household participants and a clinical interview of both household and non-household participants. The information gathered by the clinical interview will be used to determine prevalence estimates of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder; bipolar I disorder; major depressive disorder; generalized anxiety disorder; posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); obsessive-compulsive disorder; anorexia nervosa; and alcohol, benzodiazepine, opioid, stimulant, and cannabis use disorders among U.S. adults ages 18 to 65 years. Household Rostering The household rostering includes inquiries about all adults ages 18 and older residing in the household, to assess eligibility for inclusion in the study, and then selecting up to two adults for the household mental health screening. The total number of household members and numbers of adults and children are first asked, followed by the first name, age and sex of all adult household members, as well PO 00000 Frm 00140 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 as whether any adult in the household has had a serious medical condition. The best time to be interviewed is collected as well. The computerized roster can be completed online, by phone, on paper, or in-person. The target population is adults ages 18–65 residing in U.S. households; it is estimated that 45,000 household rosters will be completed. The primary objective of the household roster is to select up to two age-eligible participants for the mental health screening interview. Household Mental Health Screening The household mental health screening interview utilizes the Computerized Adaptive Testing for Mental Health Disorders (CAT–MH) or the World Health Organization’s Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) instruments to assess symptoms related to the mental health and substance use disorders of interest, including schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder; bipolar I disorder; major depressive disorder; generalized anxiety disorder; posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); obsessive-compulsive disorder; anorexia nervosa; and alcohol, benzodiazepine, opioid, stimulant, and cannabis use. The screening instrument also includes questions on treatment, receipt of Social Security Disability Income (SSDI), military experience, and exposure to and impact of COVID–19. The computerized mental health screening can be completed online, by phone, on paper or in-person. The primary objectives of the household mental health screening interview are to assess the symptoms endorsed and determine eligibility and selection for the MDPS pilot program clinical interview.

Seven new questions were added pertaining to number of Communities Talk 
activities that have ever taken place in the community (q2), 
preparation (tied or not tied to Communities Talk) completed to help 
organizers carry out evidence-based strategies to prevent UAD in their 
community (q4), confidence to carry out tasks related to evidence-based 
prevention (q7), current work to carry out evidence-based strategies 
(q8), perceived efficacy of Communities Talk to enhance UAD prevention 
in the community (q10), type of organization represented by respondent 
(q13), and audiences targeted by respondent's organization (q14). Some 
of these items (i.e., q4, q7, and q8) are modified versions of 
instruments validated by Chinman et al. (2008).
    The revisions were necessary to better align the data gathered to 
the short-term and long-term outcomes of the Communities Talk 
activities for organizers, specifically:

Short-Term

     Increase staff's perceived threat of UAD to residents of 
the communities;
     Increase staff's knowledge related to using evidence-based 
approaches to carry out future UAD drinking prevention activities;
     Increase staff's perceived efficacy of Communities Talk to 
enhance UAD prevention in the community;
     Increase staff's skills related to using evidence-based 
approaches to carry out future UAD prevention activities, specifically 
share information about UAD with others host meetings or discussion 
groups; create committees, task forces, advisory boards, or other 
action groups; build coalitions; develop strategic plans; and advocate 
for policies
     Increase staff's self-efficacy related to using evidence-
based approaches to carry out future UAD prevention activities; and
     Increase staff's intention related to using evidence-based 
approaches to carry out future UAD prevention activities.

Long-Term

     Increase staff's use of evidence-based approaches to carry 
out future UAD prevention activities.
    While completing the initial Organizer Survey, staff of Community-
Based Organizations and Institutions of Higher Education can opt in to 
be contacted 1 year later. If they do so, they will receive an 
invitation to complete the same online questionnaire 1 year later. This 
will enable SAMHSA to determine how organizers might have progressed 
toward the aforementioned short- and long-term outcomes. Note that the 
Organizer Survey (see Attachment 1) has replaced the Organizer Survey--
6 month Follow-Up. This change enables SAMHSA to compare responses 
between the initial and follow-up time periods (e.g., and thus 
determine whether the same skills have increased or decreased over 
time).
    SAMHSA/CSAP will be responsible for collecting, compiling, 
analyzing, and reporting on information requested through these 
surveys.
    The Participant Survey has been discontinued in alignment with 
SAMHSA's focus on organizers as the target audience of Communities Talk 
activities.
    SAMHSA supports nationwide Communities Talk activities every other 
year. Collecting data on each round of Communities Talk activities and 
using this information to inform policy and measure impact connects 
with SAMHSA's Strategic Plan FY2019-FY2023, specifically ``Objective 
3.2: Expand community engagement around substance use prevention, 
treatment, and recovery'' (SAMHSA, 2018). Communities Talk activities 
are intended to work at the grassroots level to raise awareness of the 
public health dangers of UAD and to engage communities in evidence-
based prevention. Notably, Communities Talk activities provide a forum 
for communities to discuss ways they can best prevent UAD by reducing 
the availability of alcohol and by creating community norms that 
discourage demand.
    SAMHSA will use the information collected to document the 
implementation efforts of this nationwide initiative, determine if the 
federally sponsored Communities Talk activities lead to additional 
activities within the community that are aimed at preventing and 
reducing UAD, identify what these activities may possibly include, and 
help plan for future rounds of Communities Talk events. SAMHSA intends 
to post online a summary document of each round of Communities Talk 
activities and present findings at national conferences attended by 
CBOs and IHEs that have hosted these activities and might host future 
activities. Similarly, SAMHSA plans to share findings with the 
Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage 
Drinking. Agencies within this committee encourage their grantees to 
participate as the activity hosts. Additionally, the information 
collected will support performance measurement for SAMHSA programs 
under the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA).

Data Collection Component

    SAMHSA/CSAP will use a web-based method, such as Voxco, to collect 
data through the Organizer Survey. The web-based application will 
comply with the

[[Page 2885]]

requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act to permit 
accessibility to people with disabilities.
    From February 2022 to April 2022, the Organizer Survey--Initial 
will be completed by an estimated 500 Communities Talk activity 
organizers and will require only one response per respondent. It will 
take an average of 10 minutes (0.167 hours) to review the instructions 
and complete the survey. Similarly, from February 2023 to April 2023, 
the Organizer Survey--Follow-up will be completed by an estimated 500 
Communities Talk activity organizers and will require only one response 
per respondent. It will take an average of 10 minutes (0.167 hours) to 
review the instructions and complete the survey. This burden estimate 
is based on comments from three 2019 Communities Talk activity 
organizers who reviewed the survey and provided comments on how long it 
would take them to complete it.
