Early Stage Psychosis: The Basics and Best Practice Updates

February 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

CE MHTTC Presents: This webinar will help mental health providers (and trainees) better understand the early stages of psychosis, including best practices for screening and referral. The onset of early-stage psychosis experiences generally occurs between the ages of 15-25, making adolescence and young adulthood critical periods for intervention. The duration of untreated psychosis (i.e., the time from onset of symptoms to treatment), however, is still close to one year for most people. Thankfully, there is emerging evidence that with early identification and treatment, we can change the trajectory of psychosis and optimize the likelihood of recovery. Practical tools and resources related to screening and referral will be provided during this event.

Define psychosis and early-stage psychosis
List two common screening tools for early-stage psychosis experiences, as well as important cultural considerations
Identify specialized referral sources for early-stage psychosis
Cite newly published research in this area (e.g., barriers to care, stigma reduction)
