Scoping Review of Stepped Care Services for Mental Health and Substance Use

Does your program or agency offer stepped care services for young people’s mental health and substance use? Have you done research on or evaluated your services? If so, we’d like to hear from you!

The Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (CHÉOS) Knowledge Translation Program has partnered with Frayme to conduct a scoping review of stepped care services for mental health and substance use services for young people. The goal of this review is to describe and characterize all of the evidence available that can inform the development and delivery of these services for young people in Canada and internationally. We aim to include all peer-reviewed and grey literature that meets the following criteria:

1) Clients/ patients/participants are 12-24 years old (or near that age range).

2) Stepped care services assessed focus on one or more mental health or substance use concerns.

3) The evaluation (ideally)occurred in the last 15 years. (Older evaluations are also of interest if they remain applicable to current health care and social service delivery contexts).

If your program has completed an internal or external evaluation along these lines, or has been the subject of community-based or academic research, we would be very interested in receiving any reports or publications you are willing to share.

For more information, or to send electronic copies of publications or reports, please contact Dr Amy Salmon (scoping review project lead and Program Head: Knowledge Translation at CHÉOS)
