Early Detection and Prevention of Psychotic Disorders: Ready for “Prime Time”?
Each month The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation hosts a Meet the Scientist Webinar featuring a researcher discussing the latest findings related to mental illness. In February, 2019, the Foundation featured Dr. Jeffrey A. Lieberman of Columbia University.Description: Research suggesting significantly better outcomes in schizophrenia when it is treated early has led to efforts to provide coordinated, multispecialty care as soon as possible to individuals who experience a first episode of psychosis. The next advance with a potentially game-changing impact will be the development of reliable means of identifying and treating those at high risk prior to a first psychotic episode. I will discuss efforts to develop more precise diagnostic measures using biomarkers and innovative treatments for preventive intervention, research that could lead disease-modifying treatments.Learn more at https://www.bbrfoundation.org/event/early-detection-and-prevention-psychotic-disorders-ready-prime-timeVisit us on the web: https://www.bbrfoundation.org If you like this presentation, please share it!
