  Purpose

This project tests a model for improving illness self-management among persons who have both serious mental illness and diabetes and will be performed within a primary care setting at a safety net hospital system. The information gained from the randomized trial will be supplemented with reports from participants about their experiences of trying to improve illness self-management. Improvements in self-management should result in a reduction of psychiatric symptoms and improvements in functioning and physical health.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Targeted Training in Illness Management (TTIM)
Participants in this arm will receive the TTIM intervention as well as receiving regular treatment for their DM and SMI from their normal medical and mental health care providers.
Behavioral: Targeted Training in Illness Management (TTIM)
This intervention blends psychoeducation, problem identification/goal-setting, behavioral modeling and reinforcement via use of Peer Educators, and health care linkage, has been adapted to the primary care setting and targeted for SMI-DM participants. Generalizability is enhanced with relatively brief in-person participation requirements and by utilizing professional staff typically found in primary care. TTIM will stress information sharing that is accessible to participants, and through a collaborative process, foster motivation for SMI-DM self-management.
No Intervention: Treatment As Usual (TAU)
Participants in this arm will continue to receive Treatment as Usual from their usual medical and mental health care providers. They will not receive any intervention.

Detailed Description:

This project will test a novel intervention, Targeted Training in Illness Management (TTIM), intended to improve both serious mental illness (SMI) and diabetes mellitus (DM) self-management in 100 individuals with SMI-DM vs. 100 individuals with SMI-DM receiving treatment as usual (TAU). The intervention will be conducted in a safety-net health system primary care setting and will be conducted as a randomized controlled trial (RCT). The primary effects of TTIM will be assessed with respect to SMI symptoms, Functional Status/Role Impairment, General Health Status, and DM outcomes. Secondary outcomes include adherence to psychotropic and DM medication, and engagement in healthy behaviors.

This assessment will include quantitative assessment of facilitators/barriers targeted by the proposed intervention as well as a supplemental qualitative assessment. The qualitative assessments will include input from patients and interventionists. Specific aims for the qualitative analysis are to validate findings from the RCT, expand understanding of "key active ingredients" of TTIM, and provide information to inform future studies on individuals with SMI and related medical conditions.
