With generous support from the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and the Sidney R. Baer, Jr., Foundation, we have created the following handouts to help families of young people experiencing psychotic symptoms or showing signs of risk for psychosis.
These are intended as educational tools, not comprehensive guides. Families are encouraged to work closely with a clinician to decide what is most appropriate for their child, given his or her unique history, context, and set of issues or symptoms.
If you have suggestions for additional handouts or corrections or want to let us know how they worked for you, please feel free to email
Check back in. We improve our handouts from time to time and are developing new ones.
