Psychosis and Severe Mental Illness: Recovery through Early Interventions

By attending this one day conference you will hear from expert speakers on how you can implement Early Interventions for Psychosis and Serious Mental Illnesses in your service and ensure you are meeting referral wait times standards.

“The NICE quality standard on psychosis and schizophrenia recommends that adults with a first episode of psychosis start treatment in early intervention in psychosis services within 2 weeks of referral. These services can improve clinical outcomes such as admission rates, symptoms and relapse. The access and waiting time standard states that from 1 April 2016 more than 50% of people experiencing a first episode of psychosis will be treated with a NICE approved care package within 2 weeks of referral. Since the introduction of this waiting time standard, the percentage of people starting treatment within 2 weeks as recommended by NICE has increased from 64% to over 80%. The Next Steps in the Five Year Forward View publication highlights some positive progress but mental health care remains a priority area for improvement. The data shows that NICE’s recommendations relating to psychological therapies for people with common mental health conditions and access to early intervention in psychosis services have seen improvements in uptake as these areas have become high priorities in the NHS. However, data from the Quality and Outcomes Framework and the CQC community mental health survey show that there is scope for improvement in the uptake of NICE guidance.” NICE guidance and current practice report 2017 Mental Health

Through national update sessions, presentations from people with lived experience, practical case studies and expert sessions the conference will update delegates on best practice and evidence with regard to the management of Serious Mental Illness.
