CMHI Communities

Tools for Sustaining Community Created Systems Of Care

Soon after SOC communities receive CMHI funding from SAMHSA, they are asked to map out their desired system change, plan how to accomplish that change, and generate shared responsibility for the results.

The USF Logic Model Team provides assistance to community teams as they accomplish these tasks. This process is called a "theory of change" and the tool to complete the process a "logic model." Visit the links below to learn more about the logic model development process.
