Team-Based Care More Effective for Psychosis Than Community Care

Treating first episode psychosis with team-based specialty care is more effective than treating with typical care, according to research published in The American Journal of Psychiatry. Researchers also found that patients treated for psychosis early after a first episode had better outcomes.

Kane and his colleagues trained clinicians at clinics around the United States to treat psychosis patients with a specialty care program called NAVIGATE. In this program, specialists work with patients and their families to create a personalized treatment plan that can include recovery-oriented psychotherapy, low doses or antipsychotic medications, family education and support, case management, and work or education support.

I’m seriously considering gathering a group of people and start pressuring our government here for better mental health care. It’s a disgrace compared to what the US and the UK, specially the UK. Although here the things we have are all free and the meds at a really low cost, the advantages of socialism.
