Presented by SAMHSA and New England Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network (MHTTC). The Early First Episode Program at the University of New Mexico’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences provides multidisciplinary and recovery-oriented Coordinated Specialty Care to young adults experiencing a first episode of psychosis (FEP). Members of the Early team will review best practices for initial engagement, assessment, and family involvement when working with Latinx youth experiencing psychosis for the first time. This presentation will also include a discussion of potential similarities and differences in working with Latinx youth in different regions of the United States. The presentation will be targeted at clinicians from across disciplines who may encounter this population in their daily work (Psychiatrists, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, Psychiatric PAs, PCPs, social workers, psychologists, school counselors, etc.).
