AMHSVTYP: TYPE OF MENTAL HEALTH TRT RCVD IN PST YR

NOTE:  The variables in this section are recoded variables
that were created from one or more variables from the
following sections: Adult Mental Health Treatment and
Recoded Substance Treatment.

The following variable, AMHSVTYP, classifies what type of
mental health treatment/counseling was received in the past
year. Respondents who reported receiving treatment for
mental health were classified in one of 7 mutually exclusive
categories. A respondent was assigned to level one if they
reported receiving inpatient treatment only (AMHINP2=1 and
AMHOUTP3=2 and AMHRX2=2), to level two if they reported
receiving outpatient treatment only (AMHINP2=2 and
AMHOUTP3=1 and AMHRX2=2), to level three if they reported
receiving prescription medication treatment only (AMHINP2=2
and AMHOUTP3=2 and AMHRX2=1), to level four if they reported
receiving both inpatient and outpatient treatment only
(AMHINP2=1 and AMHOUTP3=1 and AMHRX2=2), to level five if
they reported receiving inpatient and prescription
medication treatment only (AMHINP2=1 and AMHOUTP3=2 and
AMHRX2=1), to level six if they reported receiving
outpatient and prescription medication treatment only
(AMHINP2=2 and AMHOUTP3=1 and AMHRX2=1), or to level seven
if they reported receiving inpatient, outpatient, and
prescription medication treatment (AMHINP2=1 and AMHOUTP3=1
and AMHRX2=1). Respondents who did not receive mental
health treatment in the past year were assigned to level
eight (AMHINP2=2 and AMHOUTP3=2 and AMHRX2=2). Respondents
whose specific treatment was not distinguishable due to
missing values in one or more of the three source variables
(AMHINP2, AMHOUTP3, or AMHRX2) were assigned a SAS missing.
