Recognizing and Intervening in Early-Stage Psychosis
The Washington Early Recognition Center (WERC) is a specialized clinic for young people experiencing early signs of psychosis or who have recently been diagnosed with a psychotic disorder. Our goal is to identify people early in the course of their illness and provide evidence-based interventions to reduce symptoms and improve social, educational, and vocational functioning. This presentation will focus on the defining symptoms of psychosis, how to recognize them, and what you can do to help yourself or a loved one. The importance of early intervention and potential barriers to treatment will also be addressed.
