Psychosis Early Intervention: From Bench to Practice Recap

Psychosis Early Intervention: From Bench to Practice

Saturday, March 19, 2016
The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia

Georgia’s first ever conference dedicated to highlighting the emerging science of psychosis early intervention for youth was held at the Carter Center in March, 2016. Hosted by DeKalb CSB’s CEO, Dr. Joseph Bona, this conference featured some of the top researchers in the country who reviewed the latest scientific findings in this developing area of early schizophrenia and psychosis. If you would like to learn more about Psychosis Early Intervention, view the videos below or on YouTube.

DeKalb CSB’s Prevention and Early Intervention Program (PEIP) strives to reduce the duration of untreated schizophrenia in youth or those considered at high risk for developing psychotic illnesses. The surveillance and monitoring program identifies youth at ultra-high risk of developing schizophrenia before they experience their first psychotic break. “This program is imperative to stop individuals from being permanently disabled for the rest of their lives,” shares Rachel Weissman, Team Lead of the Prevention and Early Intervention Program. “A lot of things get taken away from those with schizophrenia, and we want them to have happy and successful lives in whatever way that means for them.”
