Webinar Title: “Is it real or not real? Do I have psychosis?”

If you think your brain is playing tricks on you – you’re not alone. We’ve created a webinar to help guide you or someone you know through what might be some confusing experiences. 

You will learn:

  • What is psychosis?
  • How we developed tools to identify if someone was at risk of developing psychosis.
  • How people are turning to the internet and technology to get help and information. 
  • And what are some personal experiences from someone who struggled with psychosis and found help. 

Providers and advocates will gain knowledge on up to date training on current status of identifying and supporting young people who are experiencing psychosis for the first time.
