SAMHSA/APA Launch Clinical Support System Resource

NYAPRS Note: The American Psychiatric Association has launched a SAMHSA funded Clinical Support System-SMI Resource’s whose mission is “to advance the use of a person-centered approach to care that ensures people who have SMI find the treatment and support they need. For clinicians, we offer access to education, data, and consultations so you can make evidence-based treatment decisions. For patients, families, friends, people who have questions, or people who care for someone with SMI, we offer access to resources and answers from a national network of experts.

The Clinical Support System-SMI Resource has launched:

About This Initiative: SMI Adviser is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and administered by the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The APA works closely on this project with a team of experts from 30 other mental health organizations. This team includes clinical experts, peers, patients, families, and policy makers.

This resource will be available to all that need assistance addressing SMI be they providers, families, or clients. Resources are not yet posted; however, individuals do have the ability to seek a consultation or ask a question.  Training resources which can be viewed on-demand will be added imminently. Please disseminate to your grantees and other relevant partners.  This is a publicly available resource which we want to be widely available and promoted beyond just our grantees.
