                Treatment and Mental Health Services Communications Messages--(OMB No.
                0930-0196)--Reinstatement
                 As the federal agency responsible for developing and disseminating
                authoritative knowledge about substance abuse prevention, addiction
                treatment, and mental health services and for mobilizing consumer
                support and increasing public understanding to overcome the stigma
                attached to addiction and mental illness, SAMHSA is responsible for
                development and dissemination of a wide range of education and
                information materials for both the general public and the professional
                communities. This submission is for generic approval and will provide
                for formative and qualitative evaluation activities to; (1) assess
                audience knowledge, attitudes, behavior and other characteristics for
                the planning and development of messages, communication strategies and
                public information programs; and (2) test these messages, strategies
                and program components in developmental form to assess audience
                comprehension, reactions, and perceptions. Information obtained from
                testing can then be used to improve materials and strategies while
                revisions are still affordable and possible. The annual burden
                associated with these activities is summarized below.
