Description

Virtual Forum: Early Intervention In Psychosis: Benefits, Barriers, & Best Practices

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description:  Psychosis is ranked as one of the top three most disabling conditions worldwide, with a longer duration of untreated psychosis associated with a poorer treatment outcome. It is believed that deterioration in functions and abilities occur at the fastest rate during the early phase of psychosis, and it has been hypothesized that the greatest impact in the treatment of psychosis might occur during this ‘critical period’ of neuronal and psychosocial plasticity.

During this virtual forum, Diana Perkins, MD, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Richard Keefe, PhD, Duke University Medical Center, and Matcheri S. Keshavan, MD, Massachusetts Mental Health Center Harvard Medical School and will discuss the role of early intervention in patients with schizophrenia. The online discussion will cover an overview of the benefits, barriers, and best practices of early intervention, including a review of the successful Outreach and Support Intervention Services (OASIS) and the Specialized Treatment Early in Psychosis (STEP) programs. The discussion will conclude with time for questions from the audience.
