Culturally Adapted Family
THE OFFICIAL HOME OF THE HEALTH CANADA PROJECT ENTITLED
"Culturally adapted psychoeducation for the families of patients with first episode psychosis for english-speaking minority communities"
The Culture, Community and Psychosis Information Network (CCPiN) will aim to turn the cultural lens on mental health practice, clinicians and researchers in order to make explicit hidden assumptions about psychosis and how these are promoted and propagated in our own cultural moment.
Some examples include examining the social ecological theories of the origin and nature of psychotic disorders; cultural variations in psychotic symptoms and experience; social and cultural mediators of the course of psychosis; and innovative treatment approaches to address cultural diversity in psychosis.
