Family Psychoeducation for Serious Mental Illness

Harriet P. Lefley

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the implementation of family psychoeducation (FPE) in mental health services in the United States and in Europe. It presents research findings on implementation and application and fidelity issues. Barriers to implementation may come from families and consumers, with time, distance, and confidentiality issues, as well as from clinicians and administrators reluctant to commit staff effort and funding. Major issues identified in research included reimbursement and financial incentives, commitment of stakeholders, and training and appropriate administration. Various solutions are offered by seasoned FPE researchers and clinicians, such as establishing an agency position for family-friendly services, staff training, and funding commitments from county or state mental health administrators.

Keywords:   reinbursement, financial incentives, barriers to implementation, FPE, staff effort, funding
