CATS Program Outcomes Study

As of January 2018, an OHSU technical assistance team began evaluating the outcomes of CATS programs throughout the state. The team collects data from the different programs about the youth they serve and calls families for their feedback two months after CATS ends. This allows the team to monitor how CATS is working for youth and families, in order to make improvements to the program. 

The CATS program has served over 1,200 youth and their families since data collection began in January 2018. Over 250 families have provided feedback, helping shape the CATS program and improve mental health care for youth in Oregon.
