16th Annual Education Conference
“A Call to Action: Creating a Movement to Change Lives”
Saturday, April 9 Pittsburgh Airport Marriott
This conference aims to challenge our region to implement not only promising early intervention programs for First Episode Psychosis, but to create a dialogue that leads to appropriate and much needed changes to the treatments and supports in our region. Through these changes, emerging adults can receive the most effective care and improve recovery outcomes.
First Episode Psychosis programs offer real hope for recovery for the 100,000 adolescents and young adults who experience their first psychotic episode each year. Please join us on Saturday, April 9 and find out how these “game changing” programs can alter the trajectory of a young person’s life and how they can be implemented in our region.
Registration and conference information available soon.
