Major NIMH research project to test approaches to altering the course of schizophrenia
Date:7/21/2009

options include medications, psychosocial treatments, and rehabilitation, including teaching patients and families how to manage the disease. The hope is that such a coordinated approach tailored to each individual and sustained over time may make lasting differences in the acceptability of treatment and overall function.

Agencies and organizations that play a role in providing health care and other services to people with schizophrenia will have an opportunity to participate in the design of the interventions to be evaluated by RAISE. Federal organizations, including the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Social Security Administration, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, will be involved along with mental health care consumers and family members, private health care providers, additional scientific experts, and state and local agencies. Other agencies may become involved as the project proceeds. Involving these stakeholders will help ensure that, if successful, this evidence-based approach can be disseminated and adopted rapidly, thus significantly speeding the transition between research findings and their use in real-world practice.

Two research groups will work in parallel to develop and test potential intervention approaches. One group will be led by John M. Kane, M.D., of The Zucker Hillside Hospital and the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Manhasset, N.Y. The second group will be led by Jeffrey Lieberman, M.D., of the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, Inc. at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University, New York City. The research teams feature national and international collaborations, with treatment to be delivered in up to 30 clinical sites across the United States.

Recovery Act funds will underwrite the initial two phases
