Many mental health and addictions agencies across Ontario gather feedback from clients. By providing insight into how well services are performing and if the needs of clients are being met, feedback offers valuable information for monitoring service outcomes and making improvements to service delivery. But the methods and tools for collecting this information vary. And there are no standardized ways to interpret the information.
A new tool, however, was recently developed by the Client Satisfaction Project team, located at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Following ethics approval and on-site training, the Ontario Perception of Care Tool for Mental Health and Addiction (OPOC-MHA) is being piloted in 24 agencies across the province. The OPOC-MHA, which features two sections—one for clients and one for families and significant others—has also been translated for piloting with Francophone clients.
