CalWORKs Mental Health Outcome Monitoring: Implementation and Demonstration Study
July 2016

For several years CIBHS has been working with the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health to design a system for the routine monitoring of CalWORKs Mental Health outcomes. This study evaluates the implementation of the monitoring system between October 2014 and February 2016. It also uses data from the monitoring effort to profile employment and psychiatric outcomes on a quarterly basis. Finally, it presents four policy issues that the monitoring data permits DMH to address.
