National Council for Behavioral Health

The development of early onset psychosis intervention programs has gained quick momentum in communities throughout the U.S. As demonstrated by studies from NIMH, SAMHSA, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, health care practitioners’ ability to provide thorough and effective early onset services can significantly reduce a young person’s chance of experiencing long-term disability status as a result of untreated or mistreated mental illness. To assist organizations seeking to or in the process of implementing evidence-based interventions for the treatment of psychosis, the National Council has teamed up with Senior Vice President for Behavioral Health Services at North Shore-LIJ Health System, Dr. John Kane — one of the premier national thought leaders around the academic, research and clinical programming for psychotic disorders. This webinar will examine the processes and organizational enhancement strategies to measure quality and client improvement. Join us for this webinar to learn more about service line adjustments, particularly around staff training and organizational procedures, to effectively serve youth at risk of developing psychosis.
