Technical Assistance (TA) for Evaluation of Peer-to-Peer Crisis Response

Bevin Croft presents some results of the mixed methods evaluation of Second Story peer respite. The evaluation documented reductions in emergency services use and qualitative reports of experiences at the peer respite.

Technical assistance to organizations and localities wanting to design or implement evaluation and/or data monitoring for a peer respite or other peer-to-peer crisis response is available at no charge to those requesting assistance. Evaluation technical assistance is provided by Laysha Ostrow of Live & Learn, Inc. and Bevin Croft of Human Services Research Institute. Ostrow and Croft are the primary authors of the Toolkit for Evaluating Peer Respites, which provides guidance on collecting and analyzing data in these programs. A brief paper in Psychiatric Services summarizing their thoughts on peer respite implementation and evaluation is available for download here.
