For each intervention it reviews, NREPP publishes a report summary with general information and key findings. Recently, NREPP released a summary of Critical Time Intervention, a case-management model designed to support continuity of care and community integration for people with severe mental illness who are transitioning from institutional settings, such as shelters or hospitals, to community care and who may be at risk of homelessness. The intervention, which lasts about 9 months, has 2 components: (1) strengthening the individuals’ long-term ties to services, family, and friends; and (2) providing emotional and practical support during the transition.

The NREPP Learning Center also offers resources to help users choose and use the programs and practices that will best suit their needs. These include learning modules on implementing evidence-based programs and a library of systematic reviews of available research on topics related to mental health and substance abuse.
