Looking for more information to help you implement your community mobilization efforts?
The Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health has a number of implementation resources, including:
- Implementing evidence-informed practice: A practical toolkit that contains real-world insight, strategies and resources.
- Implementation Research: A Synthesis of the Literature discusses implementation in a community context. It addresses some important aspects of implementation in a community (e.g. mobilizing support and local champions, community participation in decision making, etc.) and discusses a measure for assessing community.
- The Active Implementation Hub offers tools and resources for actively implementing a program or practice. For example, the Hexagon tool uses six factors (need, fit, resource availability, evidence readiness for replication and capacity to implement) to evaluate new and existing interventions and may assist communities in systematically identifying the right evidence-informed practice to implement.
