In early 2017, after three years of operation, the Tailored Mental Health Management and Support (TaMMS) Project concluded. Over this time, the intervention served 585 participants. The implementation team met monthly with the WHI to share statistics, troubleshoot problems, and get support. Later, on April 10, 2018, Gregory Dalack, former co-chair of the Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder workgroup, shared project outcomes.
The project showed statistically significant decreases in depression and anxiety symptoms among participants when compared to the control group. Going forward, the model would continue to be used at St. Joe’s and Michigan Medicine and would be instrumental in Michigan’s healthcare policies relating to coverage of mental health services.
