Outcomes Workgroup: Products and Resources

The Performance Guidelines and Indicators Matrix describes what youth or a family might expect if services and supports were provided in a manner that is consistent with the Building Bridges Joint Resolution.

The Performance Guidelines and Indicators Matrix sets the stage for the development of the Self-Assessment Tool and Self-Assessment Tool Glossary, which can be used by organizations and communities to evaluate themselves against the performance guidelines and indicators of the Matrix.

These products provide guideposts and tools for operationalizing the values and principles within the Joint Resolution and establishing quality improvement processes.

The Performance Guidelines and Indicators Matrix and Self-Assessment Tool have been developed to be used for the purpose of quality improvement. It is envisioned that communities and organizations seeking to implement the values and principles of the Joint Resolution would use these instruments collaboratively and supportively. They have been designed to point to specific best practices, not prescribe them.
