QPR for Psychosis

DBHR partnered with the QPR Institute and Dr. Jack McClellan, Professor in Department of Psychiatry, University of Washington, and  Medical Director of the Child Study and Treatment Center, to develop this two-hour, two-part online course. This course is designed to teach Mental Health Providers how to recognize the onset of what may be a serious mental illness in youth, and the importance of connecting young people with treatment. 

Early intervention is critical, and often takes an average of 72 weeks for a young person to receive treatment. Many factors can contribute to delays in initiating appropriate treatment: failure to recognize that something is wrong; lack of understanding of psychosis; and stigma associated with mental illness. Even when an affected individual or family does seek appropriate help, delays in diagnosis and treatment may result from gaps in knowledge and skills in healthcare professionals regarding the detection and treatment of first episode psychosis. 

QPR for Psychosis was designed to close this knowledge gap, and increase access to treatment. 

This $39.00 training is offered free of charge as part of the Washington State Early Psychosis Initiative’s efforts to increase early identification and intervention for young people experiencing a first episode of psychosis.
