In the U.S., a young person with early psychosis waits about 74 weeks before getting care, while those in the U.K. wait about 7 weeks. We can't wait while young lives get off-track and families struggle with what to do. We know what works, yet effective first-episode psychosis programs still don't exist in most communities. We can change that by spreading the word about these programs and advocating for program expansion. It will take individuals impacted by early psychosis, families, NAMI leaders and allies working together to change the standard of care. This dynamic session will share the core components of first-episode psychosis programs, the difference these programs make in young lives, new information and resources from NAMI and the successful strategies used by one state to expand these programs statewide. - Michael Haines, Peer Support Specialist, EASA/Young Adult Hub, Behavioral Health Services, Peace Health, Eugene, Ore. - Tamara Sale, M.A., Director, Early Assessment & Support Alliance Center for Excellence, Portland State University Regional Research Institute, Portland, Ore. - Moderator: Darcy Gruttadaro, J.D., Director of Advocacy, NAMI, Arlington, Va.
