Essentials of Field-Based Psychiatric Services

April 26, 2023

Presented by Shayan Rab, MD

This presentation will outline key principles in field-based psychiatric services through a model developed by the HOME Team. Psychiatrists will learn how to adapt traditional psychiatric services for service delivery in the field and gain a better understanding of the innovations Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) has made available to support field-based psychiatry. The presentation will outline how to utilize a team-based approach in supporting community reintegration and the role of a psychiatrist in critical psychosocial interventions, including housing support. Internal and external DMH clinical resources will also be shared to enhance collaboration and care-coordination efforts. This training is tailored for community mental health providers working in field-based settings in Los Angeles County.
