Responding to a shift within Alberta’s health care system toward outcome-based evaluation, a model premised on the reciprocal relationship between social structure, social problems & mental vulnerability was developed. This model takes both the individual & the community into consideration. An outcome monitoring system which operationalizes these concepts is described. A manual is provided for mental health service providers that wish to undertake outcome-based evaluations.
