This one-day Symposium brought together decision makers, providers, consumers, family members, and researchers to exchange ideas and information about evidence-based practices and systems serving early psychosis populations. We covered a diverse set of topics including pathways into care, statewide approaches to providing services, addressing the needs of diverse populations, and funding approaches. Thank you for joining in on the dialogue.
