New Tools for Implementing Evidence-Based Care for Serious Mental Illness

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

More than 11 million adults in the United States have a serious mental illness. Outcomes for these illnesses are good when appropriate treatments are received; however, rates of delivery and utilization of evidence-based care for this population are moderate to low. This article introduces SMI Adviser, a national initiative, supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, to advance the use of evidence-based practices and delivery of patient-centered care for the population with serious mental illness. SMI Adviser offers free technical assistance to clinicians caring for this population through accredited educational opportunities, vetted resources, and on-demand consultations.
