(Psychosis Education, Assessment, Care
Wednesday, December 2, 2015
7:00 – 8:30 PM
NAMI Office, 100 W Main St, Suite 204, Lansdale
Come and join the festivities – food, music, good company – and celebrate the end of the year and the start of a new year.
We will also host Irene Hurford, M.D. Dr. Hurford is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania and the Program Director for the Psychosis Education, Assessment, Care and Empowerment (PEACE) program at Horizon House. PEACE is a program for early intervention in psychosis. PEACE provides evidence-based services for individuals ages 15+ who are experiencing symptoms or signs of psychosis, including hearing voices, seeing visions, feeling paranoid and other experiences. PEACE also helps people with pre-psychosis symptoms (or prodromal psychosis), which are often more subtle, including new onset of behavioral disturbances and functional decline, bizarre behavior or new onset depression or anxiety.
Come and meet Dr. Hurford, hear about this remarkable program, and enjoy our holiday festivities.
We also invite attendees to bring a wrapped gift for an adult resident of the CHOC, the homeless shelter in Norristown. Please mark them “Male” or “Female.”
This event is free and open to the public; however an RSVP by Monday November 30th is appreciated: 215-361-7784.
