COREC collaborates with programs at the CECMH to design and implement program evaluations, which allows programs to measure their implementation process, program impact, efficacy, and outcomes. We work with programs to design plans for program evaluation and outcomes measurement, including data collection. COREC also assists with data analysis and interpretation, and helps programs develop short evaluation briefs.

Program evaluation plans are tailored such that they effectively measure different aspects of a program’s functioning and outcomes. The CECMH’s horticulture therapy program has been evaluated and program evaluation plans for the community mental health court and the supported employment program are underway.
