Many individuals who develop a first episode of psychosis in their teens or early 20s experience a disruption in their education. Many still have scholarly and professional aspirations. While evidence-based interventions to assist these individuals in obtaining and maintaining employment are available, the development of formal educational support has lagged behind.   This webinar will focus on supported education, as it has evolved in the RAISE-ETP NAVIGATE program.  The challenges of four groups of students will be addressed—high schoolers, college students, graduate students, and those interested in obtaining a GED or technical training.  Relevant research will be reviewed, and overarching principles to guide interventions with students recovering from a recent experience of psychosis will be presented. Practical tips and resources will also be offered.

Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in Q&A.
