Washington State Institute for Public Policy
October 2005
The 2002 Washington State Legislature directed the Institute to conduct a longitudinal study on the outcomes of state-funded mental health clients to identify best practices in provision of public mental health services. Two preliminary reports from February 2004 and March 2005 provided baseline information on clients’ demographic characteristics, employment, living situation, selected mental health conditions, criminal justice involvement, mental health functioning assessment scores, use of mental health services, and on caseloads of regional support networks. This report provides details of baseline information on employment outcomes, one of the outcomes measures stipulated by the legislature. An outcomes report showing changes between 2002 and 2004 will be completed by the end of 2005.
