Rikke Addis is the founder of Behavioral Health Evaluation Strategies (BHES), a company focused on helping organizations assess and improve client outcomes, to strengthen communities.
Rikke started her work in behavioral health as a graduate student of cultural anthropology. Focusing on at-risk youth, Rikke applied a social suffering framework to her analysis and combined participant observation and oral history methods to gather stories and observations of suffering among youth in the community.
Prior to founding BHES, Rikke oversaw evaluation efforts at community-based children’s behavioral health organizations. While there, Rikke oversaw evaluation of programs and conducted qualitative interviews with youth, caregivers, and service providers to understand effectiveness of services.
Rikke also led implementation of agency-wide CQI programs with the goals of decreasing the frequency of physical restraints among youth in a group home setting, and improving functional outcomes across multiple outpatient and community-based programs. In 2014, Rikke joined the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) as a state-wide evaluation consultant. Here, she developed an approach to data-driven practice to assist providers in using real-time outcomes data to monitor and adjust treatment.
Rikke is a certified Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) trainer, working with agencies and providers to implement Routine Outcome Monitoring (ROM).
