Ludmila De Faria, M.D., Early Recognition and Management of Psychosis in the College Population

This webinar will help participants identify critical issues related to the onset of psychosis in college age individuals. Early adulthood remains a crucial period when major developmental tasks such as individuation from family, accepting responsibility for one’s self, making independent decisions, and establishing an adult relationship with parents takes place. It is also a time when most major psychiatric disorders can initially present. At the end of the webinar, participants will be familiar with the prevalence of psychiatric and substance use problems in college students, risk factors for developing persistent mental health problems among this population, and its implications for their adult life.

Cheryl Corcoran, M.D., on Cannabis and Psychosis

Cannabis use is prevalent among individuals with psychosis, as well as among teens and young adults at clinical high risk for psychosis. Dr. Corcoran will review the association of cannabis use and psychosis in both an historical and developmental context, addressing the debate as to whether cannabis use causes psychosis and schizophrenia, reviewing evidence for causal association from population and clinical risk studies. For cannabis use in CHR cohorts, Dr. Corcoran will review prevalence and correlates, temporal associations with symptoms, prediction for psychosis onset, challenge studies, surveys of reasons for use, and potential interventions.

Supported Employment and Education Webinar

Supported Employment and Education (SEE) is a critical ingredient in early intervention provided through a Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) model. Offering an opportunity to get back to work or school is often the most appealing option for a young person following an initial crisis and can create a critical opportunity for engagement in the program. In addition, providing rapid and robust support around vocational and academic goals can help reduce/prevent an accumulation of disability in these important life domains. While successes are plentiful, there are also challenges in rendering this element of CSC programming. This webinar aims to address some of these challenges and design a path for an ongoing connection/conversation for SEE specialists across the country.
