Providing Technical Support and Implementation of Services for Adolescents and Young Adults Experiencing a First Episode of Psychosis
The Center and the Minnesota Department of Human Services Behavioral Health Division has funded an initiative to provide clinical training and ongoing technical support and fidelity reviews to teams in Minnesota providing evidence-based care for persons who have experienced their first episode of psychosis. The teams are trained in the NAVIGATE coordinated specialty-care model developed as a result of findings of the Recovery After Initial Schizophrenia Episode-Early Treatment Program (RAISE-ETP) funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. Four teams have been trained in the state of Minnesota and are being provided ongoing consultation. These are the University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry , M HEALTH , Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) in the Twin Cities metro region, and a fourth team, at the Human Development Center based in Duluth, MN.
