I truly believe that early intervention gives the best chance for a young person with a psychotic disorder to recover. It has worked for me! In this inspiring Brain Waves "double feature," two women will present their perspectives on the early treatment approaches offered at the IMHRO-funded CAPPS/ABBRC psychosis prevention/early intervention clinic at UCLA. First, Dr. Carrie Bearden, Director of the center, describes some of the core and emerging treatments offered to its young clients. Next, Gayle Ayres, mother to Anna, a 2012-2013 ABBRC client, provides her impressions of the program and of how it has benefited Anna.
