Culturally Responsive Person-Centered Care for Psychosis

In collaboration with CT DMHAS, PRCH carried out a 5-year research grant funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.  This project examined the development and implementation of person-centered planning within two large, urban mental health systems.  The aim of the project was to examine a model of person-centered care which incorporates much of what has been learned in recent years regarding the effectiveness of interventions such as self-directed wellness strategies, community integration programs, peer-support services, and collaborative treatment planning.  The project targeted the needs of people of color who are living with psychosis given that health disparities research and experience has shown that such individuals comprise one of the most disenfranchised populations in American medicine.  While the project focuses on this target group, its results have the potential to ultimately inform state-wide and nation-wide efforts to develop culturally-responsive, person-centered models of care and planning.  A brief overview of the inteventions within the grant is provided below:
