What is coordinated specialty care (CSC) for first-episode psychosis?

Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) is a team-based, multi-element approach to treating First Episode Psychosis. The approach includes case management, individual or group psychotherapy, supported employment and education, family education and support, and low doses of antipsychotic medications. CSC is a collaborative, recovery-oriented approach involving clients, treatment team members, and where appropriate, family members, as active participants. CSC is typically delivered by 4-6 clinicians who are trained in the principles of phase-specific care for FEP and maintain a shared caseload of 30-35 clients. CSC services are currently available in 49 states.
