FAST Forward Community Readiness Assessment

The FAST Forward system of care is designed to serve the needs of NH youth with severe emotional disturbances and their families. The program's success depends on the readiness of NH communities to provide accessible, high-quality services and supports.

The FAST Forward evaluation team from the Center for Research on Psychological Practice at Antioch Universite New England assessed community readiness and found that efforts are underway, but communities are not very aware or supportive. The report and executive summary made recommendations on ways to bring youth, families, communities, and systems together.
