This resource was selected by SMI Adviser content partners and approved by the SMI Adviser clinical expert team for inclusion in the knowledge base.

About 3 percent of Americans will experience an episode of psychosis during their lifetime. In most cases, individuals experience a first episode of psychosis during their teen years or early adulthood. Research shows that providing early access to treatment and services improves outcomes and reduces disability. This webinar briefly reviews the portfolio of technical assistance products developed in 2017 and discusses two of the products in depth. These two address the use of cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis and issues in the treatment of affective psychosis within coordinated specialty care programs.
