The promise of early detection and intervention for individuals diagnosed with psychotic disorders is transforming the delivery of services for young people experiencing the onset of schizophrenia-spectrum illnesses. International research and the US Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) projects were followed by federal funding via the Community Mental Health Block Grant programs to jump start the delivery of so-called Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) programs. CSC programs are multi-disciplinary and multi-element team based services. Program elements include tailored pharmacotherapy and primary care coordination, individual or group cognitive behaviorally oriented psychotherapy, family support and education and supported employment and education. Some programs include peer support.
The presentation will consider the goals and challenges of moving research into practice for this population with a focus on the New York State experience. It will divide the pathway to and through care into three parts. “Before" CSC will consider the imperative to reduce the duration of untreated psychosis and illness. “During" CSC will discuss the task of delivering high quality CSC and the limits of CSC. “After" will tackle the issue of what comes next and the durability of benefits of CSC programs. Examination of the expansion of CSC reveals the potential and pitfalls of hastening the application of research to practice. It requires the creation of an orientation to learning and quality improvement so the programs evolve as research provides more answers.
