Early Interventions for Psychosis: First Episodes and High-Risk Populations

Monday, January 1, 0001

Individuals with first-episode psychosis who participated in a comprehensive, team-based treatment program experienced fewer symptoms, better quality of life, and fewer inpatient hospital days over five years than those who received usual care in the community, according to a report in Schizophrenia Bulletin. On July 11, Ted Lutterman Senior Director of Government and Commercial Research at NRI will participate in the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM)’s workshop on Early Interventions for Psychosis. This free public workshop that will examine the data on the epidemiology and outcomes for people at high risk for psychosis, for those who have experienced the first episode of psychosis, and will consider ways to improve the care for these individuals. The workshop will be accessible to the public via live webcast, as well as in-person. Learn more.
