Case Study: Early Assessment of the Mental Health Block Grant Set-Aside Program for Addressing First Episode Psychosis and Other Early Serious Mental Illness


ASPE is releasing a report on the initial evaluation of the implementation of the Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) 5% Set Aside for early intervention programs for Early Serious Mental Illness (ESMI). Twelve states were selected and classified into three tiers according to their stage of implementation of ESMI programs and intended use of the set-aside funds, representing a gradient from most advanced in their implementation (Tier 1) to least (Tier 3), depending on whether they already had an early intervention program, had a prior RAISE study site, participated in the Medicaid expansion, or their degree of centralization in governance.
