New Standard of Care Fund

Donor Advised Fund, Education, Program, Research

An International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry effort with the goal of identifying, studying and promoting safe, humane approaches to helping those with mental disorders. Examples of such approaches are psychotherapy, residences based on the Soteria model, non-drug help for persons in early psychosis, peer support and other recovery-based approaches.

It’s about ethics

ISEPP’s New Standard of Care Fund will support various efforts to find, explore, study, understand and promote safe, humane, life-enhancing approaches to helping persons with mental health challenges.

In general, this means approaches which do not use psychotropic drugs as the primary treatment but, rather, use drugs very judiciously, for very limited periods of time and only as an adjunct to other forms of treatment. Examples of other approaches are various forms of psychotherapy; residences based on the Soteria model; non-pharmaceutical help for persons in early psychosis, such as the Open Dialogue approach; supported employment, housing and education; support groups such as the Hearing Voices Network; peer support and other recovery-based approaches.

Also important to recovery are programs that help with employment, relationships, education, housing, exercise, nutrition and other issues of living.
