About

In partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, the Public Mental Health Partnership at UCLA aims to realize a vision for excellence in care for vulnerable populations that incorporates typically marginalized perspectives and builds capacity to foster health equity.

The PMHP focuses training and technical assistance resources on two DMH programs, Homeless Outreach and Mobile Engagement (HOME) and Full Service Partnerships (FSP) serving individuals 18 years and over. Both programs serve individuals with serious mental illness and both address the challenges of chronic homelessness.

FSP Foundations

FSP Foundations is a learning pathway designed for a range of service providers (e.g., case managers, mental health clinicians, nurse practitioners, housing specialists, peer providers, and substance use specialists among others) providing client care in Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs. It is ideal for both new staff and seasoned mental health providers to support them in grounding their work in evidence-based practices and strengthening skills to work with clients with severe mental illness, including those with challenges related to substance use, housing instability, and frequent hospitalizations.

Milestones are listed in a suggested sequence, however they can be completed in any order. There is no time limit on completing this pathway and trainings are organized by seasons. There are opportunities to attend live trainings each season, as well as asynchronous learning options to best fit your schedule. As you complete each training, please note that you will also need to complete the evaluation for each training in order to receive the certificate for FSP Foundations. For more questions/information about this pathway, please review our FAQ.

FSP Foundations is based on four pillars of knowledge and skill development, which inform the Public Mental Health Partnership (PMHP) training strategy. These include:

  1. Recovery-Oriented Care
  2. Trauma Informed Care
  3. Harm Reduction
  4. Systems-Oriented Care

This pathway provides a suggested guideline for engagement in trainings covering these core topics. It also provides a variety of special topic training opportunities that align with each of the four pillars.
