Dr. Adelsheim’s Webinar presentation reviewed highlights from the Institute of Medicine’s 2009 report on “Preventing Mental, Emotional and Behavioral Disorders Among Young People.” He spoke about changing the approach to mental disorders, the world’s leading cause of disability, to one of health promotion and prevention by implementing screening and early intervention efforts.
Dr. Adelsheim talked about the Early Assessment and Resource Linkages for Youth (EARLY) project, a program he directs in Albuquerque that targets school personnel, community and medical personnel, and the general population to educate them about the signs of mental illness, especially the serious mental disorders of depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The EARLY program also involves screening and referral services, and treatment through multi-family groups, school/ employment support, and other evidence-based methods.
