This webinar, held on World Schizophrenia Day in partnership with the Schizophrenia and Psychosis Action Alliance, aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the needs of people living with schizophrenia and the implications of the severe, systemic gaps in care often experienced by this population. Panelists will explore the role of innovation, care delivery, and policy in alleviating the human and economic toll of schizophrenia, psychosis, and related disorders.
Attendees will learn about:
● Schizophrenia, psychosis, and related disorders as serious brain disorders;
● Societal costs and implications of schizophrenia, psychosis, and related disorders from a multi-sector perspective;
● The biomedical innovation landscape and role of patient-focused drug development in improving treatment options for people with schizophrenia;
● Policy and practice opportunities to improve the care system for schizophrenia, psychosis, and related diseases.
This event is open to all interested individuals. Federal, state, and local bipartisan policymakers, clinicians and innovators, practitioners in the health, housing, and justice communities, and people with schizophrenia and their care partners are highly encouraged to attend.
