This one-day conference will focus on early intervention in major mental illness, especially pertaining to young adults enrolled in undergraduate and graduate level university programs. Special attention will be paid to identifying those at risk for major mental illness, implementing necessary supports for individuals experiencing difficulties, developing optimal responses of campus teams, and training faculty, clinical staff and university officials to respond effectively to psychiatric events. There will be a focus on implementing successful early detection and treatment programs, decreasing the incidence of violence, under-or-untreated mental illness, and suicide. The morning session will review issues of the epidemiology of psychosis, violence, and suicidality in this student population and early intervention and prevention strategies. It will include personal accounts from the unique perspective of a former student who suffered with mental illness, as well as accounts of what can be done in light of recent knowledge. The afternoon session will address training college counselors to identify and respond to major mental health crises, the work of a unique program for students inside a psychiatric hospital, and the challenges and successful initiatives for managing the mental health needs of student populations. Clinical interventions including psychopharmacology will be addressed. The program will have leading clinical and research faculty present state-of-the-art clinical and research updates.
