TITLE OF PRESENTATION:
Changing the Treatment Paradigm Locally for Those who Experience Psychosis
This workshop outlines how diverse persons with lived experience provided outreach, made presentations and ran groups in ways that honored their lived experience with “psychosis.” Imagine how a system populated with such specialists might improve treatment for those who might otherwise be wary of accepting services.
