Researchers have identified a need to explore the use of big data in mental health organizations, such as identifying strategies and tools to optimize data use, and examining the role of big data in mental health service delivery and policy development.

Implementation & Effectiveness of the Youth in Transition Intensive Case Management

The proposed research will consist of an evaluation of both the implementation and effectiveness of the YouIT program for youth and young adults with mental health and addiction problems. An implementation evaluation will be conducted to document whether the program has been implemented as intended (based on best practices) and how the program is actually implemented. The outcome evaluation will examine the outcomes of clients over the course of their participation in the YouIT program.
