This article summarizes recommendations from a recently published supplement, Translating the Psychopharmacology of Antipsychotics to Individualized Treatment for Severe Mental Illness: A Roadmap. The President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health stressed the importance of incorporating the latest scientific information into mainstream health care as rapidly as possible. In keeping with this goal, the Roadmap drew on clinical trial data, information on antipsychotic pharmacology, practice guidelines, consensus statements, and expert opinion to develop recommendations for achieving best outcomes for individual patients.
