Course Overview

Now more than ever people who care about the state of our mental health system are looking for a new way forward in the post-pandemic world.  The fragility of this broken system – already failing the people it was intended to serve and leaving families and friends feeling helpless – has not withstood the pressures of COVID-19.

Dave Pilon and Kerry Morrison have adapted a presentation planned prior to the world-wide lock-down that tells the story of a remarkable system that has been in place for the last 40 years in Trieste, Italy.  Recognized by the World Health Organization as a global best practice, the community-based system of care focusses upon the needs of the whole person in non-institutional settings with a robust reliance upon peer involvement and social supports.  Founded upon the belief that a person’s recovery journey is tied to their sense of purpose and the ability to work or contribute, the Trieste model inspires a re-imagination of how  we do this work.  In Trieste, a city of approximately 220,000 residents, there are six psychiatric beds in an unlocked ward for the entire city, and clinical staff at the community centers are the first responder to a crisis, not law enforcement. 

Target Audience

Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practitioners (CPRPs) and CPRP Candidates, Certified Child and Family Resiliency Practitioners (CFRPs) and CFRP Candidates, providers, and administrative staff.

Difficulty Level

Intermediate to Advanced

Learning Objectives

After completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • List the guiding principles of the Trieste model.
  • Discuss how Trieste model principles are entirely consistent with and reinforce the principles and practices of psychiatric rehabilitation.
  • Adapt the Trieste model to an American cultural and clinical context.
  • Explain the importance of community involvement in building out the “social infrastructure” that a true community-based system of care is predicated upon.
  • Recognize the essential elements (payment reform, documentation reform, and recovery-informed practice ) outlined in an Innovations Pilot, drafted by Dr. Dave Pilon at the request of the L.A. County Department of Mental Health for consideration by the state’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission in May 2019.

Instructor Bios

David Pilon, PhD, CPRP.

Dr. Dave Pilon served as the Chief Executive Officer and President for Mental Health America of Los Angeles from October 2009 until his retirement in November 2017.  He has consulted in the design and transformation of mental health programs and systems throughout the United States, New Zealand and Japan.  He is now an independent consultant and was the writer of the successful proposal to the California Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission to fund the TRIESTE Pilot for $116 million over a five-year period.

 

Kerry Morrison managed the business improvement district (BID) in Hollywood for 22 years and left that role in 2019 to be fully devoted to pursuing mental health policy reform.    A recipient of a Stanton Fellowship for 2016-17, her study inquiry to explore a better way to help people who were chronically homeless and suffering from severe mental illness led her to Trieste Italy.   She has now visited that city five times and has led two California delegations to their bi-annual conference to raise awareness of the model.  She lived in Trieste for a month in 2019 and was graciously welcomed into their system as an observer.  Her Accoglienza blog chronicles that experience and relevant observations upon returning to LA and she has formed a nonprofit project, Heart Forward LA, under the auspices of Community Partners.
