Learn how the Early Intervention Framework can support services in Scotland
The Early Intervention Framework (EI Framework) aims to increase the effective implementation of evidence-based early intervention and prevention approaches to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. It has been designed to support services to make fully informed decisions about what interventions might be implementable and sustainable for their specific context.
The EI Framework includes:
- A searchable database of evidence-based mental health and wellbeing interventions for children and young people (from the antenatal period- 18 years)
- Comprehensive information for each intervention included in the database across six key dimensions of implementation
- Guided questioning to support critical thinking and decision making regarding selecting and implementing interventions
A self-assessment tool to enable consideration and evaluation of unique local implementation contexts
A rating system for the six implementation dimensions with prepopulated scores for Programme Indicators (Usability, Supports, Evidence) and the ability for the user to self-rate the Implementing Site Indicators (Fit, Capacity, Need) based on their local context
