APA, NIMH, SAMHSA, and SMI Adviser are partnering with PEPPNET (Psychosis-Risk and Early Psychosis Program Network) to bring the second National Conference on Advancing Early Psychosis Care in the United States to IPS with the theme, "The Complexities of Real-World Care."

This event will pull together a diverse group of speakers, including national experts in coordinated specialty care implementation comprised of:

  • clinical experts,
  • mental health policy leaders, and
  • people who themselves have experienced psychosis and recovery.

Keynote speakers, workshops and panel presentations will cover a wide range of topics and provide clinicians with quality tools that can be implemented in the care of individuals with clinical high risk (CHR) or early psychosis.

Objectives

Conference participants will:

  • Identify models for bringing the latest research in CHR and early psychosis to community-based clinical care;
  • Learn how to apply person- and family-centered principles to CHR and early psychosis care;
  • Identify effective strategies for addressing substance use issues in CHR and early psychosis intervention;
  • Gain expert perspectives on clinical challenges commonly encountered in affective psychosis care.
