Other Co-PIs Shannon Dorsey
Team Name RIPPLE
Funding National Institute of Mental Health 1R21MH119360-01A1
Project Status Recruiting

The first year of this project will develop a taxonomy, or list with definitions and examples, of possible ripple effects that might result from common strategies used to implement children’s mental health services. This taxonomy could be used by researchers, implementers, and others in implementation planning and monitoring efforts. The second year of this project will test the feasibility of developing a pragmatic measure of one ripple effect.
