Schizophrenia Forum Radio Debuts
Chuck Schulz and Carol Tamminga
Podcasts are a great way to make time pass quickly on long commutes to work or during hard workouts at the gym. Now you can add highlights from the schizophrenia research world with Schizophrenia Forum Radio! The episodes, airing monthly to begin with, then becoming more frequent, will
include a short digest of recent updates at the Forum, followed by an interview with a leading figure in the field. We launch our podcasts this month with a conversation with Carol Tamminga and Chuck Schulz, who are retiring from the leadership of the International Congress on Schizophrenia Research after this year's meeting. We asked them to recount some of the history of the meeting and point out highlights from the upcoming meeting.

BBRF Webinar Spotlight on Early Psychosis Treatment
Nina R. Schooler
The only silver lining to the mass shootings of the last few years in the United States is a rare bipartisan push to increase treatment options for people in the early stages of psychosis. More than 100 early psychosis clinics are expected to be open by the end of 2016, employing methodologies developed for the NIMH RAISE (Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode) research studies. Read about the first outcome results from RAISE in Hakon Heimer's article.

One of the RAISE researchers, Nina Schooler of SUNY Downstate Medical Center, will discuss these developments in a webinar titled, "Early Team Based Treatment For People With Psychotic Symptoms: The RAISE-Early Treatment Program Experience," hosted by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation on Tuesday, April 14, 2:00-3:00 p.m., EST. Visit the Foundation website to register.
