The case manager responds to the distress tool by coordinating external support services as needed.
Group II: Basic case management supplemented by rapid access healthcare servicesExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Basic case management supplemented by a fit-for-purpose rapid referral process for trainees with active mental health and/or substance use disorders affecting their program participation.
Group III: Basic case management supplemented by DT and rapid access healthcare servicesExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Basic case management supplemented by both the self-report distress tool and rapid referral process for those trainees at-risk of program absence or drop-out from either mental health or addictions issues.
Group IV: Basic case managementActive Control1 Intervention
Basic case management with bi-weekly meetings between case manager and trainees that includes check-ins, frequent visits to construction sites and monitoring of feedback forms from mentors. Case managers attempt to connect trainees with external support services as needed.
