Davis, Cathy; Martin, Graham; Kosky, Robert; O'Hanlon, Anne
This project consists of three interrelated streams which aim to: (1) develop and maintain a national network of mental health service providers, and an easily accessible clearinghouse of relevant information, to facilitate the development of innovative early intervention services across Australia; (2) address challenges in reorienting service delivery in child and adolescent mental health toward an early intervention focus; and (3) promote the best practice in early intervention in priority mental disorders of children and adolescents. One of the strategies employed by the project is the conducting of a national stocktake of early intervention programs. This stocktake involves assessing the current situation by counting and valuing programs, and assessing progress and prospects. The national stocktake of early intervention programs includes identification of the population of programs to be studied by collecting information on the program type, target group, and coverage of the program. The AusEinet project team has provided some limited information to help evaluate the evidence of effectiveness provided by programs. (Contains 18 references and 5 appendixes.) (GCP)
