Clinical Brief: The Basics of Coordinated Specialty Care for Early Psychosis

Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) is an evidence-based, recovery-oriented, multidisciplinary treatment program tailored for individuals experiencing Early Psychosis. CSC involves joint treatment planning (or shared decision-making) between the people in treatment and recovery and their care team, which can include mental health providers such as peer specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and case managers. CSC can provide individual and family counseling, medication management, case coordination and assistance with educational and career objectives, as well as other services.

Person-Centered Recovery Planning Consultation Corner: Session 1 

The Person-Centered Recovery Planning (PCRP) Consultation Corner is a 6-month learning series featuring a monthly webinar on the “FAQs” of PCRP; offering practical tools and resources to support quality PCRP at the level of both individual service delivery and organizational systems change; and providing follow-up “office hours” through smaller-group technical assistance for webinar participants who wish to take a “deeper dive” on a given topic. 


Participants will be able to:


  • Define PCRP and its essential elements
  • Increase familiarity with existing and emerging state and federal requirements regarding PCRP
  • Articulate a minimum of three differences between traditional methods of treatment planning and best-practice PCRP
  • Learn more about how the MHTTC PCRP Consultation Corner series can provide tools and resources to support the implementation of PCRP at your organization



While the Consultation Corner’s webinar series is open to a national audience, priority for technical assistance office hours will be given to webinar participants from the New England (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire) and South Southwest (Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas) regions. 


Join us on for the first session on March 27 to learn more about the PCRP Consultation Corner series and how it can help you meet current and emerging program standards around collaborative recovery planning. This series is co-sponsored by the New England and South Southwest MHTTCs. More information about the series.
