Research capacity building at Mind Australia

Project Details

The Recovery and Social Justice Unit has been involved in multiple projects that have specifically been commissioned by Mind Australia in order to evaluate and improve their services and programs. This includes evaluations of the Frankston Youth PARC services, the Peer Recovery Communities and the Mind Recovery College. As an example of this work, the evaluation of the Mind Recovery College initially involved developing an evaluation framework for the College and then conducting a process and early outcomes evaluation of this innovative service model.

Involvement in this evaluation led to our becoming members of the Recovery Colleges international communities of practice, attending and presenting at two international meetings and other conferences, and preparing publications. We were able to engage the staff and students of the College in a participatory research project that subsequently impacted on service improvement and development.
