A grant is available to a Wisconsin non-profit, county, government agency, or consortia for an early intervention program to treat youth and young adults with psychosis. At 2:00 PM, August 21, 2014 a proposers' conference will be held, and prior to 3:00 PM, August 29, 2014 is the submission deadline for all questions. The target population for this intervention are individuals from ages 15 - 25.

Funds will be provided for an early intervention treatment for First Episode Psychosis (FEP) utilizing a Coordinated Services Care (CSC) model that meet federal and state requirements. The CSC evidence based model is an early intervention program serving youth and young adults aged 15-25 with non-organic, non-affective psychotic disorder diagnoses. The CSC program will utilize a coordinated team approach to providing intensive services to young adults in the early stages of FEP utilizing person-centered and recovery-oriented philosophies.

Components of CSC are outreach, low-dosage medications, cognitive and behavioral skills training, Individualized Placement and Support (IPS) supported employment and supported education, case management, and family psychoeducation. The model also emphasizes addressing each individual’s unique goals, needs, and preferences through shared decision making and collaborative treatment planning. CSC clients are enrolled in the program for a limited time (2-5 years) providing skills and treatment. This early intervention offers real hope for clinical and functional recovery.

The CSC model program will provide low-barrier access to specialized clinical providers for individuals aged 15 to 25 experiencing a FEP. Services will be provided in home, community, and clinic settings. Key elements will include early detection of psychosis; team-based care; shared decision making; collaborative treatment planning; wellness, recovery and resilience orientation; person-centered care; focus on normal developmental milestones; youth friendly environment; small caseloads; limited treatment length; and transition to step-down services.
