Pilot Study to Survey Persons with Mental Illness Who are Willing and Able to Work Pilot Study to Survey Persons with Mental Illness Who are Willing and Able to Work ASU submitted an R01 application (with Professor Baldwin as PI) to NIMH to collect data that will support a comprehensive analysis of the experiences of persons with serious mental illness in competitive jobs. The application was scored at the 35th percentile. The reviewers were unanimous in endorsing the importance of the topic but expressed three main concerns: 1. We presented a detailed outline of the proposed survey instrument but the reviewers were concerned we did not have a final draft. 2. We proposed an innovative, low-cost strategy to screen for persons with SMI by piggybacking on a large, ongoing, nationally representative survey (the PULSE) fielded by Thomson Reuters. Because the strategy is a new and untested use of the PULSE survey the reviewers wanted evidence we could use it to successfully identify our sample. 3. The reviewers also questioned our ability to collect data of sufficient scope and detail through telephone interviews using a survey instrument that had not been tested in the field. . The current project is a pilot study of our survey methods that will address the concerns raised by NIMH reviewers. Results of the pilot study will be included in a revised R01 application to NIMH to prove we are able to do what we propose to do. On the revised R01 application Professor Baldwin will again be the PI and ASU the lead university. The application will be for a multi-year multi-million dollar project with full overhead. I am requesting a waiver of overhead on the pilot study so we can submit a revised R01 application that fully addresses the reviewers concerns.
