Clinical Support System for Serious Mental Illness (CSS-SMI)

This initiative supports the use and implementation of evidence-based screening and treatment for serious mental illness (SMI) through education and consultation.

This initiative, called SMI Adviser, supports the use and implementation of evidence-based treatments for serious mental illness (SMI). The American Psychiatric Association engages and leads more than 30+ national mental health organizations who help guide this interprofessional project. SMI Adviser supports real-world clinical practice with education, data, and consultations.

The SMI Adviser website offers:

  • Consultations for mental health professionals -- including psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and peer specialists -- on the implementation of evidence-based screening and treatment for SMI.
  • CME/CE-certified online courses for clinicians on a variety of topics related to SMI.
  • A searchable knowledge base that anyone can use to look for resources and answers about SMI.
  • Resources for family members and individuals who live with SMI.
