AMHOUTP3: RCVD OUTPATIENT MENTAL HEALTH TRT IN PST YR

NOTE:  AMHOUTP3 is similar to the variable AMHOUTP2
which was created in previous NSDUHs. The only difference is
that those respondents who reported receiving outpatient
mental health treatment/counseling in the past year at "Some
Other Place" (AUOPTYR=1 and AUOPOTOP=1) only and their
write-in response was classified as an invalid outpatient
mental health treatment/counseling location or alternative
treatment/support (AUOPYRS2=6,7,8,10,11,17,30,35,38) are
defined as SAS missing instead of having a positive
response. In addition to the responses described above,
like AMHOUTP2, AMHOUTP3 was also defined as SAS missing
for persons aged 12-17 and those coded as bad data,
legitimate skip, don't know, refused, or blank
(AUOPTYR=89,94,97,98,99).

AMHOUTP3 was assigned a positive response if a respondent
indicated they had received outpatient mental health
treatment/counseling in the past year (AUOPTYR=1) and they
did not indicate an alternative source or invalid outpatient
location (AUOPYRS2=6,7,8,10,11,17,30,35,38) as their only
location for outpatient treatment.
