The project is an evaluation of the outcomes and cost effectiveness of the Time Out House Initiative in Queensland to inform future service development. The program aims to provide early intervention in a short term (up to three weeks) safe and youth-friendly residential program and three month outreach support for young people whose circumstances have had an impact on their mental health or, if unaddressed, are likely to have an impact. Qualitative and quantitative data instruments are being developed to collect outcomes, process and cost effectiveness data. Outcomes for the young adults and family carers and outputs from the project and other administrative data sources are being analysed to present a comprehensive account of the program.
