WellnessAre you living with someone with a mental health issue? Are you afraid of a psychotic episode? Have you struggled to find the best treatment and care for your loved one?

A new project funded by theNational Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) suggests that first episode psychosis is best cared for using a team-based, coordinated specialty care approach.

John M. Kane, M.D. created a treatment program that uses a coordinated specialty care called NAVIGATE.
