Fact Sheet: Implementation of Coordinated Specialty Services for First Episode Psychosis in Rural and Frontier Communities

This resource was selected by SMI Adviser content partners and approved by the SMI Adviser clinical expert team for inclusion in the knowledge base.

Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) is an evidence based approach to providing early intervention for psychosis, and it has been found to improve outcomes. This team based set of services can be
particularly challenging to implement in rural communities, resulting in potential disparities in service availability for individuals living in rural and frontier areas. This fact sheet presents strategies for delivering core CSC components in rural and frontier settings to address these difficulties.
