Goal Statement: Improve treatment for individuals with early Serious Mental Illness. By September 30, 2019, HHS wants at least 280 evidence-based Coordinated Specialty Care programs providing services to individuals with first episode psychosis, representing a seven-fold increase in the number of such programs compared to 2014.*
*This target assumes stable funding at the federal and state level and may need to be adjusted if there are major unanticipated changes in either.
