Research Report

Authors: Janet C. Frank, DrPH, Kathryn G. Kietzman, PhD, MSW, Jo Ann Damron-Rodriguez, LCSW, PhD, Danielle Dupuy, MPH

​The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research received a 2-year contract from the California Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) to assess the progress made in implementing a system of care in California for older adults with Serious Mental Illness and to identify methods to further statewide progress in this area.

The Deliverable 3 Report for the California Mental Health Older Adult System of Care Study provides findings from the secondary data analyses and key stakeholder interviews, which are two of the three planned data sources for the study.

Part 1, the Secondary Analyses, included the review and analyses of three categories of documents: 1) evaluation reports commissioned by the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) and 2) evaluations and reports produced by other governmental, California mental health and/or older adult stakeholder groups; and 3) Three-Year Program and Expenditure Plans and Annual Updates from the six counties participating in the study.

Part 2 reports on the Key Informant Interview process and findings. This was a major study component that provides primary data to answer the research questions about progress in Older Adult System of Care development and the role of the Mental Health Services Act.

The report is funded by the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) under Contract 14MHSOAC016.
