National Demonstration of Early Detection, Intervention and Prevention of Psychosis in Adolescents and Young Adults in Oregon
The Foundation's program, National Demonstration of Early Detection, Intervention and Prevention of Psychosis in Adolescents and Young Adults, was designed to replicate the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Program -- an intervention that uses evidence-based psychosocial and pharmacologic interventions in the early identification and treatment of adolescents and young adults with severe mental illness.Under this grant, the Mid-Valley Behavioral Care Network (MVBCN) will replicate the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Program model. The four components of the PIER model include: family psychoeducation, family-aided assertive community treatment, supported education or employment, and low-dose antipsychotic medication. In addition to these components, each site under this initiative will develop a community outreach and education program, disseminate information to key populations, create a specialized, multi-disciplinary clinical team, and develop a steering council of key stakeholders. The sites will be expected to identify and treat approximately 100 clients over the four-year project period.
