Screening for Mental Illness in Nursing Facility Applicants: Understanding Federal Requirements (2001)

As part of a larger evaluation of the PASRR program, The Lewin Group wrote a paper that reviews literature concerning PASRR and mental health services for persons in nursing facilities. It details the Federal laws and regulations concerning PASRR, reviews key policy issues from the literature, clarifies frequently asked questions regarding the process, and identifies additional policy questions to be studied. The following is a summary of the findings of the literature review and the key issues concerning the implementation of PASRR.

This report was prepared in 2001 by The Lewin Group for the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
