Eval11 Session 471: The Recovery-Orientation of Mental Health Programs: Valuing Different Perspectives 

11-10-2011 09:41

Recovery has increasingly been recognized in the mental health field as the primary goal of individuals receiving services. As such, it is important to understand the extent to which mental health service programs foster and promote the recovery of mental health consumers. As part of a training initiative sponsored by Maryland's Mental Health Transformation State Infrastructure Grant, this evaluation examined the recovery-orientation of several Psychiatric Rehabilitation Programs. The Recovery Self-Assessment (O'Connell, Tondora, Croog, Evans, & Davidson, 2005) was completed by both program staff and service recipients. The results showed significant differences in the way in which program staff and consumers rated the programs. The results will be discussed in terms of possible reasons for the differences as well as importance and value of including different stakeholder perspectives in the evaluation of mental health service programs.
