What is collaborative care and how can this approach be used for people with serious mental illnesses?

Collaborative care is an approach to carefully following your mental health treatment over time and making sure that it is as effective as possible. When choosing a clinic or provider, you should ask whether they have any way of tracking your symptoms over time and changing treatments as needed to ensure that you get the best possible care. Collaborative care and other treatment models are most effective when the individual receiving services begins the process of self-management and works in concert with their treatment providers.
