EBP implementation

MNCAMH currently has four science-based intervention models currently available or in development, each designed to meet the needs of different clinical settings and target populations:

  • Enhanced IMR (E-IMR)
  • Illness Management and Recovery (IMR)
  • Integrated IMR (I-IMR)
  • Integrated Coping Awareness Therapy (I-CAT)

You can read more about each of these offerings under our Research page.

Enhanced IMR (E-IMR)

Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery for Co-occurring Disorders (E-IMR) was developed to provide integrated treatment for co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. E-IMR is a new model that combines two evidenced-based practices (Integrated Treatment for Dual Disorders and IMR) to advance training in integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders, leading to improved client outcomes.

Illness Management and Recovery (IMR)

Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) is a set of specific evidence-based practices for teaching people with severe mental illness how to manage their disorder in collaboration with professionals and significant others in order to achieve personal recovery goals.

In addition to the IMR intervention we are developing an IMRapp for the iPad tablet (and Android).

Integrated IMR (I-IMR)

A self-management intervention for persons with co-occurring mental and physical health problems.

Integrated Coping Awareness Therapy (I-CAT)

Integrated Coping Awareness Therapy (I-CAT) was originally developed by MNCAMH Director, Piper Meyer-Kalos, PhD, LP, David Penn, PhD and Diana O. Perkins, MD, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to aid recovery for people who had experienced their first episode of psychosis.
