How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Interdepartmental Serious Mental Illness Coordinating Committee is established in accordance with the provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act. The committee accomplishes its purpose through advising, consulting with and making recommendations to the Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use, who reports to the Secretary of Health and Human Services on issues related to advances in serious mental illness (SMI) and serious emotional disturbances (SED), and advances in access to services and support for adults with SMI or children with SED. In addition, the ISMICC will evaluate the effect that federal programs related to serious mental illness have on public health, including public health outcomes such as (A) rates of suicide, suicide attempts, incidence andprevalence of SMIs, SEDs, and substance use disorders (SUD), overdose, overdose deaths, emergency hospitalizations, emergency room boarding, preventable emergency room visits, interaction withthe criminal justice system, homelessness, and unemployment; (B) increased rates of employment and enrollment in educational and vocational programs; (C) quality of mental disorders SUD treatment services; or (D) any other criteria as may be determined by the Secretary. Finally, the ISMICC will make specific recommendations for action that agencies can take to better coordinate the administration of mental health services for adults with SMI or children with SED. Not later than 1-year after the date of enactment of the 21st Century Cures Act, and 5-years after such date of enactment, the ISMICC shall submit a report to Congress and any other relevant federal department or agency.
How is membership balanced?*The ISMICC consists of 24 members who are appointed by the Secretary, HHS. The ISMICC consists of 10 federal members or their designees from federal agencies, and 14 non-federal public members.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The ISMICC shall meet not fewer than two times each year through advising, consulting with, and making recommendations to the Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use. In carrying out its functions, the ISMICC has established five workgroups to develop the first report to Congress. These working groups shall be composed of ISMICC members, or their designees, and may hold meetings as necessary.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Committee is composed of professional and public members. The direction, scope, balance and emphasis of the advice received from this group of experts cannot be established by other sourcesbecause the membership of the Committee is uniquely constituted to meet the specific requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act.
Why close or partially close meetings?In the event a portion of a meeting is closed to the public, a report shall be prepared which shall contain, at a minimum, a list of members, ISMICC's functions, dates, place of meetings, and a summary of the ISMICC activities and recommendations made during the fiscal year.
