Measuring Outcomes in Mental Health: Implications for Policy

  • Rachel Jenkins

Abstract

The activities and purposes of mental health services can be described under three headings: inputs, processes, and outcomes. Until recently the focus of service description and evaluation has been largely on input and process variables. The strength of this book is that it illuminates the increasing number of possibihties to use outcome indicators as the main point of reference for measuring cost effectiveness.
