Dr. E. Fuller Torrey and Dr. Dennis Embry need to work together to promote the use of fish oil for the long-term prevention of psychosis

embryNetwork faithful know that Dr. Dennis Embry (a member of the CMHNetwork Advisory Council) has long been promoting the use of Omega-3 fish oil for the long-term prevention of psychosis. One of the studies that Dr. Embry has often cited is one that was funded by Dr. E. Fuller Torrey several years ago, that showed promise in the preventable effects of fish oil. For as long as I have known Dr. Embry, he has been calling for Dr. Torrey to move forward with the study.

Lo and behold, last week, the Treatment Advocacy Center, which is headed up by Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, made the following announcement in their newsletter:

 Note to CMHNetwork readers: E. Fuller Torrey is the Associate Director of Research for the Stanley Medical Research Institute.

Okay, Dr. Torrey and Dr. Embry, time to move this forward. The Children's Mental Health Network is calling on the two of you to work together to get this treatment protocol listed on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices. Collectively, you have a rare opportunity to show true collaboration between a prevention scientist (Dr. Embry) and a research scientist who has dedicated his life to treating individuals with the most severe forms of mental illness (Dr. Torrey).
