The APA and SAMHSA have teamed up to create SMI Advisor, a clinical support system, that centers on evidence-based care for serious mental illness (SMI).
Dr. Gorrindo is leading this 5-year, $14.2M initiative which focuses on the three most common conditions associated with SMI:
- bipolar disorder
- major depression
SMI advisor provides innovative education, resources, and answers about these conditions for ALL providers on the mental health care team, including family members.
The project includes:
- An interactive chat bot to help people easily find answers to questions
- A system for providers to request and receive consultations directly from clinical experts of many specialties
- Resources for patients, families, and the general public
