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=8,10,11,26) 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=85,89,94,97,98,99).

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=8,10,11,26) as their only location for
outpatient treatment.
