Welcome Behavioral Health Agency (WBHA) is a fictitious not-for-profit social services provider serving children, adolescents, and adults in Sunny Days, Florida. The agency prides itself on providing evidence-based outpatient treatment for mental health and substance abuse issues to people of all ages in the community. WBA is funded by a variety of sources, including grants from the state and several foundations.
The agency will need to submit applications to renew its funding within the next year. However, the funding sources now require that the renewal applications include evidence of the effectiveness of their programs. WBA must provide data to demonstrate that their programs are effective in reducing mental health and substance abuse symptoms and increasing functionality in their clients.
The agency has hired the students in this course as Program Evaluation Consultants. Your job is to develop a system to collect data at appropriate time points to be able to determine the outcomes of their programs. Each student will be responsible for evaluating two of the agency’s individual programs.
