The University of Maine Rural Integrated Behavioral Health in Primary Care Training Program will offer a free, live webinar about early detection of psychosis from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Friday, April 1.
The webinar is: “Screening for Early Emerging Mental Experiences (SEE ME): A model for early detection of psychosis within integrated primary care.” Despite the prominence of primary care in the prevention of serious and chronic physical health conditions, its role in the early detection of and intervention in major mental health conditions has been peripheral, particularly in the U.S. Screening for Early Emerging Mental Experiences (SEE ME) is a three-stage psychosis screening, triage and engagement model designed to address this in U.S. integrated care settings.
The webinar will be presented by Kristen Woodberry, faculty scientist at Maine Medical Center Research Institute and research assistant professor at Tufts School of Medicine, and Whitney Taggart, behavioral health clinician at Midcoast Pediatrics. The workshop will cover the arguments for and against psychosis screening within integrated care; the stages of the SEE ME model; and the skills that mental health clinicians embedded in primary care can employ to improve early detection and intervention in serious mental health conditions. It will also offer a chance to hear directly from individuals with lived experience of psychosis and a behavioral health clinician involved in the Maine feasibility project.
Register for the webinar online. A certificate of attendance will be provided to participants. For more information, contact Dyan Walsh at email@example.com.
