Sponsored by the New England Mental Health Technology Transfer Center, this series features online meetings focused on bringing together leaders, clinicians, administrators, and constituents who are interested in working together to increase feasibility and scalability of specialized early psychosis and clinical high risk for psychosis (CHR-P) treatment across the New England region and other areas in the U.S. Guest presenters will share their experience with finding ways to pay for high quality prevention services for youth and families affected by early psychosis and/or signs of clinical high risk. This will include discussions about negotiating bundled payment structures with third-party payers, providing telemedicine, and finding creative solutions to maximize existing resources in order to provide stepped care that matches evidence-based services to individual needs and preferences.

The format of each discussion in this series includes a 30-minute presentation by an invited expert followed by 30 minutes of questions and discussion by participants. Sessions will have a limit of 50 participants in order to maximize opportunities for meaningful discussion. Participants will be encouraged to network and develop workgroups to advance initiatives that are discussed. The lineup of guest speakers for this series includes:
