Goal Statement: Improve treatment for individuals with Serious Mental Illness (SMI).  By September 30, 2019, HHS wants at least 280 evidence-based CSC programs providing services to individuals with FEP, representing a 7-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.
