Statewide Outcomes Report 20 - Identifying Youth at Risk of Treatment Failure
This report describes a method using the Ohio Scales Parent-rated Problem severity scores to identify youth at risk of failing in treatment. The method relies on comparison of the initial and most recent Parent Problem Severity scores, and provides feedback, in the form of standardized messages, to clinicians. Previous research has shown that this method has proven effective in reducing the percentage of cases that fail (get reliably worse) over the course of treatment. Electronic reports supporting this method have been built into the Reports Generator (large zip file).

Statewide Outcomes Report 12 - Change and Clinical Significance
This report explores the concepts of Reliable Change and Clinical Significance in assessing changes when comparing treatment outcomes between two time points for various assessment scales employed in the Ohio Mental Health Consumer Outcomes System. In this report, we compute the reliable change index for outcomes scales where previous research had not already identified values. We also explore the concept of clinical significance and report the cutoff scores established for these Ohio Scales: problem severity and functioning. Aggregate reporting techniques using reliable change and clinical significance are presented.

Statewide Outcomes Report 11 - Statewide Update
The purpose of this report is to provide updated statewide data from the Ohio Mental Health Consumer Outcomes System during the last two quarters of fiscal year 2005 and the first two quarters of fiscal year 2006. The consumer outcomes in this report include results from various instruments: Adult A (Consumer and Service Provider), Adult B (Consumer) and Ohio Scales (youth, parent and agency worker). Demographic information of the three populations is presented. The impacts of time in treatment from results of the various outcomes instruments are also examined.

Statewide Outcomes Report 10 - Adult Empowerment
This report explores the empowerment of consumers as measured by a scale included on Adult Consumer Form A. About two-thirds of consumers indicated an overall “somewhat empowered." Higher overall empowerment scores are associated with less symptom distress, higher overall quality of life, less interference from physical health problems and a greater ability to take care of mental health problems before they get worse. Relationships between overall empowerment with various demographic variables such as gender, race and primary diagnosis are also examined.

Statewide Outcomes Report 9 (large file) - Statewide Update
The purpose of this report is to provide constituents in the mental health system with statewide data they can use to compare an individual’s scores or average agency or board area scores. The consumer outcomes in this report include results from various instruments: Adult A (Consumer and Service Provider), Adult B (Consumer) and Ohio Scales (youth, parent and agency worker). Demographic and outcomes status data for all ratings contained in the statewide database as of October 3, 2005, with administration dates during Fiscal Year 2005 (FY05) (July 1, 2004 – June 30, 2005), are presented.

Statewide Outcomes Report 8 - Youth Functioning
The purpose of this report is to provide an exploratory analysis of the trajectories of changes of children and youth consumers in their functioning subscales of the Ohio Scales over their first year of service after admission in the Ohio Mental Health Consumer Outcomes System. The majority of consumers in this analysis fall into a path of steady improvement over time. The analysis also revealed some other subgroups within the sample that follow different pathways of change. The trajectory groups were further analyzed in terms of basic demographic information such as gender, primary diagnosis and age.

Statewide Outcomes Report 7 (large file) - Statewide Update
The purpose of this report is to provide updated statewide data from the Ohio Mental Health Consumer Outcomes System in the last two quarters of fiscal year 2004 and the first two quarters of fiscal year 2005 (January 1, 2004 through December 31, 2004). The consumer outcomes in this report include results from various instruments: Adult A (Consumer and Service Provider), Adult B (Consumer) and Ohio Scales (youth, parent and agency worker). Demographic information of the three populations is presented. The impacts of time in treatment from results of various Outcomes instruments are also examined.

Statewide Outcomes Report 6 - Adult Quality of Life
The purpose of this report is to explore the quality of life of consumers as measured by a scale included on Adult Consumer Form A and Form B. Average scores on overall quality of life and financial status gradually increase as the amount of time in services increases. A better quality of life is associated with less symptom distress, less interference from physical health problems, fewer feelings of threat due to stigma and a greater ability to take care of mental health problems before they get worse. For consumers completing Adult Form A, a higher quality of life is associated with better community functioning and higher levels of empowerment. Relationships between quality of life with various demographic variables such as gender, race and primary diagnosis are also examined.

Statewide Initial Report
Published in 2003, the purpose of this report was to provide an initial view of the data in the statewide outcomes database by describing the "state of the state." It was intended to provide all constituents in the mental health system with statewide data that they could use to compare an individual's scores or average agency or board area scores. Demographic and outcome status data for individuals' most recent ratings in the statewide database are presented for adults with severe and persistent mental illness, adults with less severe mental illnesses and youth.

This reports describes a method using the Ohio Scales Parent-rated Problem severity scores to identify youth at risk of failing in treatment.
