Evaluation of the Child and Family Mental Health Project, Phase I.
Hilliard, Thomas O.; And Others
This report describes the first year (Phase I) of the 3-year evaluation of the Child and Family Mental Health (CFMH) Project. Phase I was designed to provide a descriptive analysis of the CFMH Project in terms of the number and characteristics of recipients of the services, the nature and extent of the specific primary prevention approaches used, the community and Head Start context within which the community CFMH Project operates, and the implementation process at each program. Following an introductory overview (Chapter 1) of the evaluation's phases and objectives, Chapter II describes the methodology of the pilot study which provided exploratory data on the evaluation instruments intended for use in Phases II and III. The design of the pilot study, as well as the instruments and the site selection and sampling methods used in the study are also described. The descriptive analysis of the nine experimental and five control sites involved in the pilot study is given in Chapter III. Each site is described in terms of the demographic characteristics of the community and its Head Start program, as well as the development, structure, administration, coordination, major goals, objectives, activities, support system/resources, and evaluation of the CFMH Project. Finally, results of a psychometric analysis of the 15 center profiles obtained from site visits is included in Chapter IV. (Author/MP)
