The Washington Needs Assessment Household Survey (WANAHS) was conducted in the State of Washington by Washington State University for The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. Although primarily a substance abuse survey, it included assessments for major depression, mania, anxiety, panic attacks, and psychosis using a CIDI-based screener developed by Kessler from the NCS. The WANAHS differs from the ECA and NCS in several significant ways: first, it was a telephone survey; second, it covered only one state; and third, it provided significant oversamples of five major ethnic groups, including White, Black, Asian, Native, and Hispanic.
