Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Cross-Agency Assessment of Campaigns to Reduce Negative Perceptions about Mental Health; OMB Control Number 0720-XXXX.

Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to conduct an online study testing the potential for influence of Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mental health public awareness campaigns on participants of an online panel. Military service members, veterans, and friends and family members of service members and veterans will be recruited from the panel. They will complete online surveys and view mental health public awareness campaign materials (e.g. public service announcements websites). The purpose of this research is to evaluate how exposure to these federally-funded mental health public awareness campaigns change key outcomes related to mental health and health care, such as mental health awareness (e.g., knowing how to recognize and support someone with a mental health problem), perceptions and beliefs about stigma and other barriers to care (e.g., social distance, concerns about career impacts), attitudes towards seeking professional help, intentions to seek treatment if needed, and intentions to conceal a mental health problem. This study is part of larger evaluation study of DoD, VA, and HHS mental health public awareness campaigns. DoD, VA, and HHS will use the findings from these analyses to improve their mental health public awareness campaigns. Additionally, the findings from the study will be shared through publicly available communications.
