This webinar will focus on approaches to psychopharmacology for people at clinical high risk for psychosis or who are early in the course of a psychotic illness. We will discuss when it is appropriate to start antipsychotic medication and how to work with patients/families around the starting of medication. We will have a discussion of evidence-based medications for psychosis, including clozapine, and other adjunctive medications to consider in addition to antipsychotics. We will also have a discussion of the newest antipsychotics on the market and how to consider their use in this population.
Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in Q&A.
