Specialized intervention provided in the early course of psychosis can significantly improve long-term outcomes. However, too few individuals with early psychosis access these programs, and many experience long treatment delays. A longer duration of untreated psychosis is associated with reduced benefit from treatment. There is a need for innovative, low-barrier strategies to facilitate help-seeking among individuals with early psychosis. Mobile health (mHealth) interventions may be one promising approach. mHealth interventions delivered within the context of existing clinical care have demonstrated promising results, but few have attempted to use this approach to bridge young adults at risk to treatment. In this webinar, Dr. Buck will discuss use trends in digital technologies among youth, mHealth for psychosis, and the user-centered development of two novel mHealth approaches to help-seeking and self-management support for young adults at risk for psychosis and their families.
