• Hawai‘i Clubhouse Program Evaluation, 2016

    Evaluated Clubhouses in Hawai‘i and developed evaluation design that could be sustained internally long term by Clubhouse members.

    Beginning in January 2016, I worked with Dr. Jack Barile and Joy Agner in the Ecological Determinants Lab to conduct an evaluation of Clubhouses in Hawai‘i, with a specific focus on Honolulu Clubhouses. Clubhouses are psychosocial rehabilitation programs for people with severe and chronic mental illness. These members contribute alongside staff to the functioning of the Clubhouse. Therefore, they are responsible for creating and contributing to this community, which gives them a supportive environment in which to socialize and work. Due to the participatory and consumer-run program design, we aimed to develop a participatory evaluation design that could be sustained internally by Clubhouse members after our initial evaluation was complete.

  • Intensive Case Management Evaluation, 2016

    Evaluated and designed evaluation model for an Intensive Case Management Program for individuals experiencing homelessness and severe mental illness in Honolulu.

    Community Empowerment Resources provides intensive case management and psychosocial rehabilitation services to homeless individuals living with serious mental illness in Honolulu. Along with Jack Barile and Joy Agner in the Ecological Determinants Lab, I conducted an evaluation of the program to-date and assisted in developing an evaluation model that can be sustained long-term. Data collection methods included case manager interviews, document content analysis, and client surveys.
