About the Conference

 

Family support and interventions are strongly linked to positive outcomes in psychosis. Yet, many challenges remain in implementing them in early intervention services. Among other things, there is great variation in service delivery across the province. We sometimes observe a gap between the needs of youth and their families and the services offered to them, and the involvement of families varies greatly among early intervention clinics. Our conference aims to tackle these challenges and to propose solutions to surmount them.

In this ground-breaking conference sponsored by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the CIUSSS de l’Ouest de l’Île de Montréal, and organised in collaboration with the Association québecoise des programmes pour premiers épisodes psychotiques (AQPPEP), we propose to bring together service users, families, clinicians, clinician-researchers, program coordinators and decision-makers to create consensus about promoting and improving family-focused services and family peer support in early intervention programs for psychosis in Quebec.


 

BEFORE THE CONFERENCE

 

Survey

Each program is strongly encouraged to complete a survey which will help create a detailed portrait of family engagement in early psychosis services in Quebec. Survey results will help adapt the conference to the audience. Results will be presented at group level, without identifying any single program. [Access to survey coming soon]

 

Webinars

We invite you to watch the webinars and mini videos. Webinars offer information on a variety of topics related to family engagement and family peer support and the involvement of families in the care of their youth. Mini videos contain testimonials from family members and service users about their own mental health experience and how this relates to the conference theme.
