Costing Study of the Clients of the Mobile Community Treatment Program [1987-1988: Madison, Wisconsin] (ICPSR 9843)
Principal Investigator(s): Wolff, Nancy; Helminiak, Thomas; Diamond, Ronald J.
The University of Wisconsin's Department of Preventive Medicine, in cooperation with the Department of Psychiatry and the Mental Health Center of Dane County, Wisconsin, conducted a comprehensive costing study of the clients of a community-based program for treating the mentally ill, the Mobile Community Treatment program (MCT), in Madison, Wisconsin. MCT provided assertive outreach and case management for individuals with major psychiatric disorders. The aim of this study was to determine the costs for clients of MCT to live in the community, including the costs of their medical, residential, employment, law enforcement, and maintenance needs. Clients of MCT were queried about their use of services provided by medical, human service, and law enforcement agencies, as well as their receipt of in-kind and cash benefits from public and private agencies. Service and cost data on survey respondents were also obtained from the records of local agencies, such as the Dane County Sheriff's Department, Dane County Circuit Court, Dane County Department of Public Health, homeless shelters, Adult Protective Services, and vocational training programs.
These data are freely available.
