Early intervention in psychosis: Current knowledge and future directions
Ashok Malla, MD, FRCPC
Director, Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses PEPP-Montréal, Douglas Institute;
Professor, Department of Psychiatry, McGill University
Canada Research Chair in Early Psychosis
This conference is the largest and the most comprehensive conference on this topic held in Canada since the IEPA in 2004. The conference brings together renowned researchers and clinicians, from different parts of the world, to disseminate the most up to date knowledge on neurobiological, social, psychological, and cultural aspects of the early phases of psychotic disorders, as well as on challenging problems related to substance abuse and physical health.
A two-hour open forum, with participation from service providers and users, policy makers and clinician scientists, will explore application of this knowledge to tackle challenges posed in service delivery. There will be a poster session where individuals from different early intervention services will present their work.
This conference is designed to disseminate practical knowledge to clinicians, researchers, students, administrators, and representatives from the government and to help translate research into practice and policy, so that young people suffering from psychosis receive the best possible services and increase their chances of recovery.
