Three Key Recommendations from 2011 RAND Report

Some of the key recommendations that are in the report include first, thinking about the ways in which programs can help with finding people with early warning signs of problems. So 1 example that I would offer is that most of us don't show up in a doctor's office unless we think something's wrong and we need help. But some of our colleagues, comrades, commanding officers, may spot some problems before we're quite ready to acknowledge that we have problems, and so ways for programs to support that finding early warning signs, and referring people into the care that they need. So that's 1 of the recommendations. Another recommendation really focuses on centralizing the evidence base. Learning what works from each of these programs, putting that information in 1 place, so that when a new program is starting or when a program is trying to figure out what's working well and what isn't, they can actually refer back to what's been learned from all these other programs. And the third series of recommendations we made really does focus on identifying all of the existing need, and then comparing that against services that are available to identify where there are gaps and build new programs that specifically address those gaps.
