ANYMHED2: YTH RCVD EDUCATION MENTAL HEALTH SRVC IN PST YR

NOTE:  The variables in this section are recoded variables
that were created from one or more of the edited variables
from the preceding section.

The following recoded variables contain information about
whether youths received mental health care in the past year
from each of 11 specific services for problems with
behaviors or emotions that were not caused by alcohol or
drugs.

NOTE:  The following 5 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, ANYMHED2, 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 social worker,
school psychologists, or school counselors for problems
(YSHSW) and attended a special school or participated in a
special program at a regular school for problems (YSPEC).
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.  This variable is not comparable with
variables named similarly in past NSDUHs due to questionnaire
changes in the Youth Mental Health Utilization module.
