Title of Collaborative Activity:

Mental Health Surveillance Study

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Mental Health Surveillance Study (MHSS) builds upon established federal survey platforms in order to expand the NIMH research portfolio in population-based mental health studies. The purpose of the MHSS will be to conduct additional calibration work on the survey data; to assess the feasibility of developing a longitudinal component for future surveys; and to produce up to seven reports related to mental health. In FY2012, NIMH participated in data collection activities by supplementing the MHSS sample with 1,000 clinical interviews.
