The Growing Momentum in Early and First Episode Psychosis (FEP) Programs

  • Tuesday, June 9, 2015 3:00:00 PM EDT - 4:30:00 PM EDT

    Progress continues in bringing a coordinated array of effective services and supports to communities for youth and young adults experiencing early and first-episode psychosis. Research advances continue to show tremendous promise in lessening the long-term severity of psychosis and in preventing it. The coordinated array of services and supports in early and first-episode psychosis programs are recovery-focused and include partnering with youth, young adults, and families as part of the care team. This work takes into account those aspects of life that matter most to young adults, including education, employment, relationships, and living a full life. States are now required to dedicate 5 percent of the Mental Health Block Grant to early and first-episode psychosis programs. A national network of researchers, programs, and stakeholders has formed to help ensure the broader dissemination of these effective programs. This SAMHSA Children’s Webinar Series program will discuss the expansion of early and first-episode psychosis programs statewide, and how stakeholder organizations can become more involved in expanding these programs.
