Provider Consultation Request System

SMI Adviser supports the use of evidence-based treatments for people who have serious mental illness. Our clinical experts can answer questions about SMI from all mental health clinicians. This includes physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, physician assistants, counselors, and peer specialists.

If you are a clinician, submit your questions on any topic related to evidence-based care for SMI. What kinds of questions? Ask us about psychopharmacology, therapies, recovery supports, patient and family engagement, education, and much more.

Anyone who is not a clinician should visit the Patients and Families section of the website. This includes individuals receiving care, family members, and others in the general public. SMI Adviser can not answer any questions submitted by anyone who is not a clinician.
