Evaluation in Progress
Identify the agencies involved in the delivery of mental health services and define types of services. Identify any duplication of services across involved agencies and identify best practices for improved outcomes.
This evaluation will be guided by four objectives within the scope set forth by the Legislative Oversight Committee:
- Identify the types of mental health and substance abuse services provided by State agencies, including who provides the services, division of responsibilities for delivering services, and how outcomes are measured.
- Determine if any duplication of services exists among state agencies and private providers and examine opportunities to better alignment of expertise with delivery of services.
- Identify challenges facing mental health and substance abuse providers in delivering services.
- Evaluate best practices among States for the delivery of mental health and substance abuse services and identify opportunities for improved outcomes.
