Understanding psychosis

This workshop will help participants understand what psychosis is, and how it can impact the lives of young people. We will discuss factors that can contribute to the development of psychosis and explore the importance of early identification and treatment of psychosis. Participants will develop knowledge around what they can do to assist young people who are experiencing psychosis.

This workshop is facilitated by Orygen.
