Data was collected from: psychiatric hospitals; non-federal general hospitals with a separate psychiatric unit; Veterans Affairs medical centers; outpatient, day treatment, or partial hospitalization mental health facilities; residential treatment centers for children and adults and multi-setting mental health facilities.
