Early Onset Schizophrenia Community of Practice
January 12, 2015

The National Council is launching an eight-month Early Onset Community of Practice for organizations interested in developing a strategic plan to provide early identification and ongoing treatment for youth at risk of, or showing symptoms of, first episode psychosis. Organizations serving youth between the ages of 12 and 25 may apply. They are seeking the largest pool of candidates possible, so providers who are not National Council members can apply; however, those agencies will be required to become members prior to official enrollment in the Community of Practice.

Learning activities will support creation of a strategic plan to launch a new service line, which will include:

  • Community partnerships
  • Clinical portfolio
  • Financing
  • Organizational culture

The online application must be completed by 5:00 pm on January 30. Accepted organizations will be charged a nominal fee of $500 for participation. Contact Adam Swanson, policy associate at 202-684-7457 ext. 269 for more details.
