Register for the SAMHSA-Sponsored Webinar "Opportunity Outcome Measurement in First Episode Programming: Insights from the Measures Used in the National Evaluation of the 10% Set Aside and Proposed for the NIMH EPINET"

Wednesday, May 23 at 2:00 PM EST

Join us for the next in a continuing series of webinars organized by NASMHPD and NRI focusing on methodological issues in First Episode Psychosis Programs. In this webinar we will feature the design and outcome measures that will be used in the MHBG 10% Early Intervention Study, a SAMHSA and NIMH-funded national evaluation of first episode psychosis programs. The measures were selected to be both effective measures of service recipient progress, and useful clinical tools. In addition, Dr. Robert Heinssen of NIMH will present an update on the Early Psychosis Intervention Network (EPINET) project and its intention to develop a national learning community among first episode psychosis programs. A provisional set of measures, including some of the outcome measures used in the evaluation, have been developed for the EPINET that will hopefully provide some common data elements to be used in a national EPINET effort.

  • Dr. Preethy George, Senior Study Director, Westat

  • Dr. Nichole Rohrer, Clinical Supervisor. TRAILS First Episode Program, Alexandria, VA
