Who collects the data?
School Project Managers (SPMs) at each school obtain parents' consent to collect data on their child. SPMs ask children's teachers, parents and young people themselves to complete questionnaires about their behaviour and emotional and social wellbeing before the start of the intervention and after the intervention is completed.
What do we do with the data?
We regularly monitor referrals, intervention take-up and service delivery in our schools and clusters. At the end of each academic year children's outcomes are analysed as anonymised data.
Measures of emotional and social wellbeing and behaviour:
- Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and Impact Supplement
- Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation (YP-CORE)
- Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation Outcome Measure (CORE-OM)
- Presenting Concerns
Measures of academic attainment and progress:
- Questions about children's attitudes towards learning
- School attendance
Place2Be is a member of the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC), a collaboration of mental health specialists from 70 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) across the UK and Scandinavia. Each year Place2Be receives a report comparing service outcomes with the rest of CORC. In 2014/15, children seen by Place2Be and their parents rated problem improvement and helpfulness of the service significantly more positively than service users from rest of CORC.
Who are our research partners?
Place2Be has a long history of association with the academic community, both in terms of providing data to and projects for interested researchers, as well as building relationships with critical friends that have provided invaluable advice and guidance and external corroboration for our research and evaluation findings.
We are currently collaborating with PhD and Masters students from the University of East London, University of Strathclyde, University College London, the Anna Freud Centre and the Institute of Education. We are members of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Outcome Research Consortium (CORC), a not for profit learning collaboration examining the best way of evaluating outcomes across CAMHS Services to ensure that young people and their families receive the best possible service.
