- Continual review process
- Continuous improvement
- Adjust goals and take corrective action
A focus on mental health is an ongoing effort, not a one-time occurrence. The work doesn’t stop on the day you launch your mental health strategy.
There needs to be a continual review process.
This is because your organization’s needs – and effective strategies – may change over time.
Having an ongoing review process is critical. Through evaluation, you can assess whether or not you achieved your intended outcomes and improved psychological health and safety. From there you can adjust your plans and take any corrective action. This will help keep your organization moving in the right direction.
How often you review your progress depends on what works best for your organization. You may want to start with a monthly review of your initial progress. Then, move to quarterly reviews and reporting on your progress to stakeholders. An annual review is recommend to report on outcomes and where you are relative to your baseline.
