Project IN4M: Final Report
Overall, Phase One of Project IN4M confirms that the potential exists to put in place a reliable, needs-based predictive model built around incidence and prevalence of mental health disorders and leading practices here in Canada and imported from other countries such as Australia. While the project confirms that mental health is, for the most part, a “data-free zone”, models exist for estimating the prevalence and incidence of some of the key mental health diagnoses and for better estimating the effective supply of the broader range of health and social service providers. We can also draw upon the lessons learned from the case studies conducted to refine our models around optimal mix of inputs to maximize health outcomes.
