Impact & Outcomes Committee

Description and Committee Charge

The Impact and Outcomes Committee advises the Governing Board on current and future RCCMHC-funded services and supports using both qualitative and quantitative data.

Data and Outcomes Measurement

In 2020, our grant making increased ten-fold, This resulted in increased collaboration with schools, county, and local agencies as well as increased access for thousands more youth/families.  However, this also greatly increased the number of hours needed to manage those relationships,  service agreements, and outcomes data. It was no longer reasonable to generate narrative-heavy public reports. So, we developed new progress and outcomes surveys and asked questions about collective impact and improvement across all funding areas.  Read about 2020 impact and outcomes here. 

FUNDING AREAS: 1) School Linked Mental Health, 2) Innovative Serives & Committee Outreach, 3) Non-Billable Services Bank, and 4) RCCMHC Family and Community Engagement 

SURVEY QUESTIONS: Collaboration, Referrals, Outreach to traditionally marginalized populations and underserved families, Youth/family demographics, Data collection tools, Quantifiable performance indicators related to proposed goal(s), Percent improvement, Personal story of impact, Lessons learned, Challenges/obstacles, and Alignment with RCCMHC vision and goals. 

YOUTH/FAMILY IMPROVEMENT AREAS: School engagement, Family communication/cohesion, Peer relationship, Social connectedness/community support, Emotional symptoms, Behavior problems or self-hearm. Prosocial behavior & coping (youth), Resilience & coping (parent/caregiver), Resource connections, Understanding mental health or trauma, and Access to concrete supports or tangible tools to support mental health/wellbeing. 

In 2021, the Impact and Outcomes Committee is working with a contracted researcher to further simplify this process.
