For sample children age 3 to 17 years who ever had an emotional or behavioral problem that lasted 3 months or more and ever received treatment or counseling for the problem, this variable indicates whether such treatment or counseling was provided in the 12 months.


The Field Representative's Manual does not provide a definition for treatment or any criteria for counseling, therefore these terms are assumed to be respondent defined.
