An Evaluation of Mental Health Commissioning Leadership Skills  Development Programmes. “Contrasting observations were seen between the two programmes”.

What?

An impact evaluation which compares two Mental Health Commissioning Leadership Skills Development Programmes delivered in the South and East of England.

Why?

Improving mental health service provision has become a key aim for the NHS. Comparing the results between two programmes enables us to understand how different development
programmes impact leadership and commissioning practice, and the programme design factors which may contribute to this.

How?

A retrospective evaluation using mixed methods; pre and post participation scoring, semi-structured interviews and third party testimonies.
