The sustainable dissemination of coordinated specialty care for early psychosis across the United States has prompted service providers to consider a multitude of factors that impact service delivery. The behavioral health workforce in outpatient community mental health settings is exposed to common stressors that can contribute to worker burnout. The Felton Institute Early Psychosis Model (re)MIND®, formerly Prevention and Recovery in Early Psychosis (PREP), is a coordinated specialty care model implemented in Northern California since 2007 with a multidisciplinary team formed by clinical therapists, employment and education specialists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, peer and family support specialists, and clinical program administration. Although in many aspects coordinated specialty care practitioners are exposed to similar stressors as other behavioral healthcare workers serving young people and families, effective strategies to prevent and address burnout in these highly specialized settings need to be embedded in coordinated specialty care clinical operations and include organization-level supports and practice-oriented supervision, in addition to individual-level self-care interventions. This presentation is designed for direct service providers, clinical directors and behavioral health organization leadership.
