ANYSMH: YTH RCVD SPECIALTY 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, ANYSMH, indicates whether a youth
reported receiving specialty mental health services in the
past year from any of 7 specific inpatient/residential or
outpatient specialty sources for problems with behavior or
emotions that were not caused by alcohol or drugs.  This
variable was created based on the following 7 source of
treatment variables: stayed overnight in a hospital (YHOSP),
stayed in a residential treatment facility (YRESID), spent
time in foster care (YFOST), spent time in a day treatment
facility (YDAYTRT), received treatment from a mental health
clinic (YCLIN), from a private therapist (YTHER), and from
an in-home therapist (YHOME).  Youths who reported a
positive response (source variable=1) to one or more of the
7 questions were included in the yes category regardless of
how many of the 7 questions they answered.  Youths who did
not report a positive response, but answered all 7 of the
questions were included in the no category.  Youths who did
not report a positive response and did not answer all the
questions, and adults were included in the unknown/18+ category.
