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.
