Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS)

Mental Health

The Mental Health APSS blueprint outlines actionable steps healthcare organizations should take to successfully implement and sustain improvements in order to improve outcomes pertaining to Mental Health. Actionable steps to improve Mental Health in patients and summaries of available evidence-based practice protocols are included:

  • Leadership checklist guide to determine whether current evidence-based guidelines are being followed in your organization
  • Performance improvement plan to follow which improvements are necessary
  • Clinical workflow from Mental Health/illness screening to discharge including an inpatient Mental Health screening and action tool worksheet
  • How to collaborate with patients and family members as part of the care team about different aspects of mental illnesses, recognition, and treatment
  • Mental Health resource guide
  • Guidance on how to measure outcomes

The blueprint is revised annually and is available free of charge on our website.

Hospitals that make a formal commitment to improve patient mental health and share their successes on the PSMF website have access to an additional level of consulting services.
