NHIS Mental Health Variables?

What variables are available in the NHIS related to mental health? I saw the questions related to the Kessler 6 measure. Are questions from the PHQ-9 included in the survey?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Under the 'Person' tab on the Select Data page, there is an entire category dedicated to 'Mental Health'. Specifically regarding the PHQ-9 depression questions, I don't see these variables explicitly available in IPUMS Health Surveys. There is, however, a sub-category under the 'Mental Health' category dedicated to 'Depression'.

I hope this helps.
