Psychosis, a condition marked by a loss of touch with reality, is distressing for those who experience it and their loved ones. If left untreated, psychosis can have serious impacts on people’s lives. But the good news is there’s hope. In this episode, we talk with Dr. Robert Heinssen, a leader in the development and adoption of coordinated specialty care for treating psychosis. We learn about the signs and symptoms of psychosis, discuss coordinated specialty care, and explore how NIMH research in psychosis and schizophrenia fundamentally changed the health care landscape.
