ANYMHED: YTH RCVD EDUCATION MENTAL HEALTH SRVC IN PST YR

NOTE: The following five variables were created to generate
multi-year trend estimates for the 2007 Detailed Tables.
These variables contain information on the general types of
mental health services received by youths in the past year
for problems with behavior or emotions that were not caused
by alcohol or drugs.

The following variable, ANYMHED, indicates whether a youth
enrolled in school reported receiving mental health services
in the past year from education sources for problems with
behavior or emotions that were not caused by alcohol or
drugs. This variable was created using the following source
of treatment variables: talked to school counselors, school
psychologist, or regular teacher for problems (YSCHL) and
received special education services in the classroom or
placed in a special classroom, program, or school (YSPED).
Youths who reported a positive response (source variable=1)
to one or more of these questions were included in the yes
category regardless of how many of the questions they
answered. Youths who did not report a positive response, but
answered both questions were included in the no category.
Youths who did not report a positive response and did not
answer both questions, and adults were included in the
unknown/18+ category.
