Mental Health Performance Measurement & Public Reporting Chart Book

The Mental Health Association of Rhode Island (MHA of RI) believes that one powerful way to improve mental health in Rhode Island is through performance measurement and public reporting. It is our perception that – despite its pivotal role to the lives of thousands in our state with serious mental illness – most Rhode Islanders are not familiar with the parameters, workings, and outcomes of the mental health system.

We believe that regular performance measurement and public reporting of the mental health system in Rhode Island will lead to greater awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of our system and ultimately in improvements to the system.

“What gets measured gets done.” Hopefully, this chart book will establish a starting point and a foundation for mental health performance measurement in the future.
