Title

Family Mental Health and Legal History / Family Legal Update / Family Legal Update (Young Adult)

Description

The Family Mental Health and Legal History was based on the Family History Assessment Module. It included questions to screen family members for psychiatric disorders and substance use. It also contained questions regarding any family member's involvement with the law. Lifetime information was obtained in Wave 1. During Wave 2 and Wave 3, information on legal involvement since the previous visit was obtained in the Family Legal Update.

WAVE 1: The Family Mental Health and Legal History assessment (PDF 2.7MB) included questions designed to obtain family members' history of psychiatric disorders, substance abuse, and any involvement with the law. It was administered to the primary caregivers of subjects belonging to Cohorts 0 to 18.

WAVE 2: The Family Legal Update (PDF 6.6MB) included questions designed to obtain any family member's involvement with the law since the Wave 1 interview. It was administered to the primary caregivers of subjects belonging to Cohorts 0 to 15 and to the subjects, themselves, in Cohort 18.

WAVE 3: The Family Legal Update included questions designed to ascertain any family member's involvement with the law in the past year. It was administered in two separate studies. It was administered to the primary caregivers of subjects in Cohorts 0 to 15 in the Wave 3 Family Legal Update (PDF 2.2MB) and to the subjects, themselves, in Cohorts 15 and 18 in the Wave 3 Family Legal Update (Young Adult) (PDF 2.5MB).
