Mandated Community Treatment

An intense international debate, often fueled by highly-publicized acts of violence in the community, is occurring on the legitimacy and effectiveness of policies requiring people with mental illness to accept outpatient treatment. Many assume that court-ordered treatment as an outpatient is simply an extension of long-existing policies authorizing involuntary commitment to a hospital. In fact, however, outpatient commitment is only one of several forms of "leverage"￑including access to welfare benefits and subsidized housing, and treatment as a condition of probation or in a mental health court￑commonly used to obtain adherence to outpatient services. Ongoing research supported by the MacArthur Foundation and directed by Professor Monahan is evaluating the outcomes produced by mandated community treatment￑for the individual, for the mental health system, and for society.

Mental Health Online: Improving Outcomes with Self Help Programs

Love them or hate them, computers are part of our personal and professional lives. The last ten years have seen the emergence of the innovative and cost-effective use of technology in mental health services, with web-based CBT, email counseling, text messaging for youth and online self-help. The desire for accessing services in these ways have been borne out by the uptake of such services, and there is emerging evidence of the impact such services has on service user outcomes. This presentation profiles two innovative high profile examples where online technology can be seen to be improving mental health outcomes. Mr. Thapliyal will discuss New Zealand's National Depression Initiative ￐ "The Journal" and Dr. Cartreine will present and demonstrate computer-based psychosocial support for long-duration U.S. spaceflights.

NIMH Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenic Episode (RAISE) Initiative: Potential Health and Economic Benefits of Early Intervention

Schizophrenia is a life-long, disabling mental disorder. Beginning in adolescence or early adulthood, symptoms and functional difficulties associated with schizophrenia continue for decades. Treatment costs, which include treatments for medical comorbidities such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, were $22.7 billion in 2002; costs related to homelessness and law enforcement added an additional $9 billion to the economic burden of schizophrenia in 2002 (Wu et al, 2005). New research suggests that coordinated and sustained intervention soon after the first psychotic episode may improve clinical outcomes and reduce long term disability. The NIMH-sponsored Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) initiative will test whether two early intervention packages built for the "real world" can improve clinical outcomes and achieve cost savings by improving functioning in individuals with schizophrenia.

Schyve

Michael F. Hogan, Ph.D., Commissioner, New York State Office of Mental Health (Moderator)

Paul Schyve, M.D., Senior Vice President, The Joint Commission, Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois

State psychiatric hospitals are critical components of the continuum of care required to meet the mental and physical health needs of those served by state systems. By focusing on evidence-based standards and the use of techniques of robust process improvement, the Joint Commission's goal is to help these hospitals ￑ and other accredited organizations ￑ achieve high reliability with respect to the safety and quality of care they provide. For state hospitals subject to the Medicare Conditions of Participation, the Commission has integrated the Conditions into the accreditation standards, and is in active discussion with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to revise or reinterpret those Conditions that create barriers to high quality, safe patient care.

This session provides an overview of a curriculum that NASMHPD has developed to support the training of direct care staff working in in-patient and community residential adult mental health treatment settings. The impetus for creating these training modules was to provide the public mental health field with tools for communicating with direct care staff a "shared understanding" of the key components, competencies, and principles of a transformed mental health system. The presenters cover the background of this effort, a discussion of the modules that are included within the curriculum, as well as information on how states and facilities might use these materials.

The emerging mental health system is focused on providing recovery/resiliency-oriented services as its sole and compelling goal. In order to support states in their efforts to improve and enhance their systems, a group of national experts was convened this spring to identify and articulate a set of competencies, roles, responsibilities, tasks, skills, and attributes of State Hospital Superintendants that collectively serve to promote recovery and foster resilience. The presenters will offer an overview of this experts meeting, a discussion of the eight core competencies that were identified, and information on a resource kit of materials that was developed as a result of the meeting that is publicly available to support such efforts. There will be time for Q & A with the audience.

People in this program have relied on behaviors such as aggression, self-harm, sex offenses, and substance abuse to stabilize or change their acute emotional distress. Our treatments include Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Positive Behavior Support. Positive Behavior Support and Dialectical Behavior Therapy complement each other and provide a good foundation for the New Outlook Program.

Promising Practice Northeastern Region: "Achieving Real Transparency with Families and Consumers in New Jersey's State Hospital System"

Gregory Roberts, Director, Office of State Hospital Management, State of New Jersey

This session will discuss New Jersey's initiatives to include consumers and family members in multiple aspects of their system to ensure quality in their State hospitals. The session will include discussion on the following:

  1. New Jersey's Family Monitoring Program, which allows trained family members and other interested parties (without staff escorts) to come unannounced to any hospital at any time to evaluate conditions there. These family members and interested parties are invited to then work collaboratively with State hospital staff to find solutions to any problems they may find.
  2. Information on New Jersey's inclusion of family members and consumers in its legislatively-mandated system of unannounced surveys of State hospitals conducted by the Division of Mental Health staff, which is a special review group called the Patient Services Compliance Unit. This program involves family members and consumers who have been trained to staff the PSCU hotline, which allows anyone to report suspected abuse or professional misconduct.
  3. The posting of data on New Jersey's website of incidents that occur in State hospitals, along with other heretofore "secret" information about each hospital (census data, number of forensic patients, JCAHO/CMS results, e.g.): and
  4. New Jersey's regular inclusion of family members on committees, task forces, etc. at the hospital level and at the Division level

The Joint Commission: CMS and State Hospital Accreditation

Schyve

Michael F. Hogan, Ph.D., Commissioner, New York State Office of Mental Health (Moderator)

Paul Schyve, M.D., Senior Vice President, The Joint Commission, Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois

State psychiatric hospitals are critical components of the continuum of care required to meet the mental and physical health needs of those served by state systems. By focusing on evidence-based standards and the use of techniques of robust process improvement, the Joint Commission's goal is to help these hospitals ￑ and other accredited organizations ￑ achieve high reliability with respect to the safety and quality of care they provide. For state hospitals subject to the Medicare Conditions of Participation, the Commission has integrated the Conditions into the accreditation standards, and is in active discussion with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to revise or reinterpret those Conditions that create barriers to high quality, safe patient care.

Increasing Mental Illness from 1750 to the Present: The Rise, Fall, and Resurrection of State Hospitals

E. Fuller Torrey

E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., President, Treatment Advocacy Center, Associate Director for Laboratory Research at the Stanley Medical Research Institute, Bethesda, Maryland

Although there has always been a small group of individuals who were diagnosed as being "insane," the incidence of this disorder increased dramatically between approximately 1750 and 1950. This is clear from examining records in England, Ireland, and the United States. Many reasons for the increase have been suggested, including genes, alcohol, immigrants, etc., but the reason is almost certainly biological. The continuing increase led to mass overcrowding, then to deinstitutionalization with its attendant consequences, and will next lead to a resurrection of state hospitals to their proper niche. This presentation will explore these issues.

Morbidity and Mortality in People with Serious Mental Illness

Joseph Parks Dave Shern

Joseph Parks, M.D., Chair NASMHPD Medical Directors Council; Medical Director, Department of Mental Health, State of Missouri

David Shern, Ph.D., President and CEO, Mental Health America, Alexandria, Virginia

Addressing the issues of pre-mature morbidity and mortality among state hospital patients provides an outstanding opportunity to not only improve patients' health and well being but also to better integrate inpatient with ambulatory care ￐ both in the specialty and primary care sectors. In this presentation we will review the policy and practice recommendations for improving patients' health status that are particularly relevant for state hospitals as an integral component of the overall system of healthcare.

Psychiatric Advance Directives: The Challenges of Implementation

Bob Bernstein Edith Coakley

Robert Bernstein, Ph.D., Executive Director, Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, Washington, D.C.

Edith Coakley, J.D., Attorney, Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, Washington, D.C.

Psychiatric advance directives (PADs) are relatively new legal instruments allowing consumers to stipulate what they would wish to happen in the event of future incompetence caused by psychiatric crisis. PADs, for us, have great potential as means of planning non-coercive care, but there are operational challenges in implementing them in practice. In this session, we will present the National Resource Center on Psychiatric Advance Directives (NRC-PAD), a web-based resource concerning all aspects of PADs, on which the Bazelon Center has collaborated. We will then open a discussion: what are the barriers to implementing PADs in state hospitals, and what strategies can we use to overcome them?

State Hospitals and the Future of Forensic Services

W. Lawrence Fitch

W. Lawrence Fitch, J.D., Director, Forensic Services, Mental Hygiene Administration,

Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, State of Maryland

As state hospital populations have fallen in recent years, the percentage (and in some states the number) of patients with criminal court involvement has grown, substantially in some states. In many states, "forensic" patients now make up more than 50 percent of the census. These increases reflect the enormous growth of jail and prison populations nationally and public perceptions that rates of mental disorders among inmates are rising. In some states, concerns for public safety have slowed hospital discharges. The proliferation of actuarial risk assessment in release decision-making may contribute to this phenomenon. Finally, in the 20 states that have enacted laws for the special civil commitment of sex offenders, a new, long-term patient population has emerged. Strategies for reducing the pressure on forensic beds include effective pretrial diversion, outpatient forensic evaluations and treatment, and community-based risk containment measures, particularly for sex offenders. This presentation will address these issues.

Promising Practices: Southern Region
Kentucky's Direct Intervention: Vital Early Responsive Treatment System (DIVERTS): A Program to Reduce State Psychiatric Hospital Admissions for People with Mental Illness

Steve Wiggins

Steve Wiggins, B.S.N., M.H.A., Director, Western State Hospital, Hopkinsville, Kentucky

Admission rates at Western State Hospital in Kentucky have increased nearly 2-fold since 2001. The Diverts program was initiated in August of 2006 in an effort to decrease the
admission rates and prevent the need to staff additional beds at the hospital. A funded partnership has been developed between the four Community Mental Health Centers in Western Kentucky and the sole state hospital for this region (Western State Hospital). The Diverts program for Western Kentucky is Phase I of a model for the rest of the state. This session will address lessons learned and the early results of this program, which indicate that a decrease in admissions has occurred.

Preventing Seclusion and Restraint in Public Mental Health Settings: Successes, Challengesand Lessons Learned

Kevin Huckshorn Fred Nirde Andrew Phillips

Kevin Huckshorn, R.N., M.S.N., Director of NASMHPD Office of Technical Assistance, Alexandria, Virginia

Fred Nirde, L.C.S.W., C.P.A., Hospital Administrator, John J. Madden Mental Health Center, Hines, Illinois

Andrew Phillips, Ed.D., CEO, Western State Hospital, Lakewood, Washington

Marylouise Jones, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and Traumatic Brain Injury Specialist, Western State Hospital, Takoma, Washington

Work on reducing conflict and violence in inpatient mental health settings continues to be a high priority across the United States in both public and private venues. The Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) funded State Incentive Grants to find alternatives to the use of seclusion and restraint has helped greatly to add to our current knowledge base in terms of what strategies are appearing to be successful in reducing violence and the use of seclusion and restraint. This session will showcase two state pubic mental health facilities that have taken on this challenge and have been successful in reducing the use of seclusion and restraint, reducing injuries to staff and service users, and fundamentally changing their cultures of care.

Lost in Transition: Addressing Continuity of Care

Linda Rosenberg

Linda Rosenberg, M.S.W., C.S.W., President and CEO, National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, Rockville, Maryland

This session will review the purpose and content of the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare's experts' recommendations for bridging gaps between inpatient and outpatient settings.

Hospitals and community-based organizations need uniform standards, education and better collaboration to ensure that patients with schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses who fail to show up for treatment following hospital discharge are not forgotten. Seeking to stem the tide of patients who are "lost in transition" every day, the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare assembled a 24-member independent panel of experts to develop a consensus approach of coordination between inpatient and outpatient settings and engage people with mental illness in continued care. The panel included representatives from leading accrediting bodies and hospital and community treatment organizations as well as patients, family members, researchers, state authorities, and psychiatric leaders.

Department of Mental Health, State of Missouri

Elizabeth (Betty) Vreeland, M.S.N., A.P.R.N., Program Manager, UMDNJ-University Behavioral HealthCare, Center for Excellence in Psychiatry, Piscataway, New Jersey

Despite the fact that for over a decade Americans have heard about an obesity epidemic along with the alarming news that excess body weight can lead to a variety of physical health problems including: hypertension, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, dyslipidemia, stroke, gallbladder disease, sleep apnea and certain types of cancer, the average American's waistline continues to expand. Two out of three Americans are now overweight or obese, and the World Health Organization has identified excess weight as a global problem with more than 1 billion overweight adults, with at least 300 million of them being obese. A multitude of factors, including unhealthy lifestyle habits, low socioeconomic status, and psychotropic medications place people with serious mental illnesses (SMI) at even higher risk of developing weight problems and its secondary health complication which may be contributing to the increased morbidity and mortality rates seen in this population. This presentation will provide an overview of the weight problem and present data on individual atypical antipsychotics and their propensities for causing metabolic disturbances. In addition, information regarding how to recognize, screen for, and prevent cardiometabolic risk factors will be covered. Further, scientific evidence that psychotropic associated weight gain can be prevented and reversed and evidence-based practices and a "small steps" approach for preventing and managing excess weight will be discussed.

Workforce Issues: Recruiting, Retaining, and Training Providers of Mental Health Services in Rural Settings

Dennis Mohatt

Dennis Mohatt, Director, Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Mental Health Program, Boulder, Colorado

The WICHE Mental Health Program is an Interstate Compact, established in 1955 between the 15 western states. The program has over a half-century of working with the public mental health system to improve services and develop a quality mental health workforce. During the past five years, the program has worked extensively with states across its region to explore rural mental health workforce challenges and issues. The program also worked extensively with the President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health to develop its rural issues subcommittee report and related expectations. Additionally, the program was the lead for rural workforce planning with the Annapolis Coalition.

This presentation will provide an overview of the workforce challenges facing the rural and frontier West, and discussion of recent efforts to facilitate and strengthen collaboration between higher education and the public mental health system to enhance workforce development.
