Submit questions, access resources, and receive guidance from national experts in SMI.
Our mission is to advance the use of a person-centered approach to care that ensures people who have SMI find the treatment and support they need. For clinicians, we offer access to education, data, and consultations so you can make evidence-based treatment decisions. For individuals, families, friends, people who have questions, or people who care for someone with SMI, we offer access to resources and answers from a national network of experts. SMI Adviser is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and administered by the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
