Abstract

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and five of Ohio’s University-based Departments of Psychiatry have developed strong working partnerships that have improved the quality of psychiatric residency education and Ohio’s mental health services. Strategies integral to Ohio’s Public Psychiatry Model include identifying a strong champion, integrating expert consultation, and developing consensus expectations using a small amount of catalytic funding. Successful outcomes include the establishment of public psychiatry leadership roles in Ohio’s community and academic settings; positive community-focused residency training experiences; revised curricula; and spin-off opportunities, such as “Coordinating Centers of Excellence” to accelerate adoption of evidence-based practices in community settings.
