Where can I get large data sets for download?

Hi, I looking for a repository (UK, US, EU) where there are large psychiatric data sets or surveys for public use. I have the NCS and the Nemesis but neither has the variables I'm interested in. I'm wondering if any one knows of a resource on-line I can tap into to.

thanks in advance.

Will also be applying for a Msc in Applied Behaviour Analysis as backup but that's part time 2-3 years :( Childhood trauma, social withdrawal and ...
