Review of Client Status Post Termination from MACNI
Part of the Multiple and Complex Needs Initiative (MACNI) Evaluation, the Review reports publish findings from the Review of Client Status Post Termination from the Initiatives, Five Years of MACN Panel, and Regional Gateway Report.  The cumulative data covers the period from August 2004, when MACNI became operational, to the end of June 2009. The report also describes trends for the current period covering 2008-09.  The Multiple and Complex Needs Initiative (MACNI) is a time-limited specialist service for those 16 years and older identified as having multiple and complex needs, including those with combinations of mental illness, substance abuse issues, intellectual impairment, acquired brain injury and forensic issues. Often these individuals pose a risk to themselves and to the community.
