22 The Clubhouse and Psychiatry Twenty two years of partnership Ralph Aquila M.D. John Rivera Alan Doyle Ph.D

23  Historically, treatment for mental illness focuses on elimination of positive symptoms (i.e. hallucinations, delusions, disordered speech, etc) and side effects  Little attention was paid to medical co-morbidity  Prevents focus on rehabilitation, life goals; encourages noncompliance  Disparity between severity of patient’s illness and physician’s level of training

24  Network of relationships between patient, psychiatrist, and a third person: family member, friend, clinician, staff worker, etc.  Alliance focuses on strengths and life goals, with all participants acting as co-equals  Third member can provide information about patient’s performance in other areas of his/her life  Goal becomes not only elimination of symptoms but also reintroduction into society What is the Rehabilitation Alliance?

25  Rehabilitation Alliance was implemented in 1992 through partnership between Fountain House and St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center  Psychiatric and Primary Care services provided at the Sidney R. Baer Jr. Center near to Fountain House  Convenient, non-institutional setting makes the Storefront accessible to Fountain House members, providing anonymity and protecting users from stigma The Alliance in Practice

26  2000, Primary Care Physician joins clinic  Working side by side, Psychiatrist, PC, and Fountain House Staff  Time, key factor in helping members get the services they need Primary Care

27  Prevalence is 3 to 4 times the general population  Access is much worse  Insight limits access

With this new expansion of the Sidney Baer Center, Fountain House members will have increased access to critical, high-quality care that addresses the full spectrum of their needs.” Nirav Shah, New York State Health Commissioner.
