MH:2K Final Evaluation Report

This is the final evaluation report of the MH:2K pilot project, which took place in Oldham between September 2016 and June 2017. MH:2K Oldham offered a new model for engaging young people directly in the issues and solutions surrounding mental health in their local area. A short update to this will then be provided in October 2017 following a survey with key stakeholders focused on MH:2K Oldham’s ongoing impact.

The MH:2K model involves the following elements:

• Recruitment of a core group of ‘Citizen Researchers’ aged 14-25.
• Recruitment of an Expert Panel comprised of key researchers and local decision makers.
• A series of Design Days, in which the Citizen Researchers design Roadshow events to engage a wider group of local young people on key mental health issues, including deciding the topics on which the events will focus.
• A Results Day, at which the Citizen Researchers decide findings and co-create the recommendations with Expert Panel members.
• A Big Showcase event, at which Citizen Researchers present the project outputs to a wider group of local and regional stakeholders.

The MH:2K pilot evaluation process involved an embedded evaluator working closely with the delivery team, reflecting back any emerging learning as the process progressed as well as producing this final report.

The evaluation has three aims:

1. Gauge the extent to which the project has met its aims.
2. Draw conclusions about the project's quality, impacts, and value for money.
3. Capture learning to feed into future similar projects.

A range of qualitative and quantitative evidence sources were used to write this report, including observations of meetings and events, review of project communications and documentation, questionnaires or feedback cards, and telephone interviews.
