EASA : Early Intervention for Teenage Psychosis

Members of the Early Assessment and Support Alliance discuss the research on why early family, community, and medical intervention after a young adults’ first episode of psychosis is so important  Can such an approach, one that involves far more than getting the proper medication, prevent a psychotic episode from progressing to schizophrenia?  How well does community intervention and family involvement match up against pharmaceutical interventions in the studies we have?  What exactly is psychosis?  Why is EASA focused on young adults?  Dr. Naimon explores these questions and more with his guests from EASA.
