On Wednesday, May 27, at 2 p.m. ET, there will be a free, 90-minute webinar on Peer Leadership in Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) Services: From Program Development to Outcomes Evaluation. While many EIP programs include (or plan to include) some element of peer support and/or family support, questions remain as to how to ensure meaningful peer involvement that significantly impacts services. The presenters – Nev Jones, PhDIrene Hurford, MD; and Berta Britz, MSW, CPS – will discuss both the real-world challenges of robust peer involvement and the potential for such involvement to transform – rather than merely augment – services across the domains of planning, service delivery, policy, and evaluation. Nev Jones, a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, and Berta Britz, who helped develop and now coordinates the Montgomery County (Pa.) Hearing Voices Network, have lived experience, including of early intervention programs; Irene Hurford is the program director for the Psychosis Education, Assessment, Care, and Empowerment (PEACE) program at Horizon House in Philadelphia. For more information and to register, click here
