Childhood Mental Health, Early Schizophrenia Treatment Video

There is an excellent website in British Columbia, Canada that is focused on Child and Youth mental health issues, and it includes a very good Internet-based TV documentary video on early treatment of schizophrenia, and the results that they are seeing with this approach.

Of specific relevance is the area on "Psychosis" - which includes an easy to understand video on managing Adolescent psychosis (including schizophrenia, which is a disorder that has psychosis as one of the key symptoms). The TV documentary video is about 30 minutes long and is a comprehensive introduction - covering a number of people's own stories of early diagnosis and treatment as well as the process of diagnosis and triggering factors, interventions and medical and psycho-social treatment approaches.

The entire TV documentary is highly recommended viewing for family members or people who think they may have the early signs of schizophrenia or psychosis. Also great for students who are doing a report on schizophrenia.

Click on the following link to visit the web site, click on the "Enter Site" area once you get to the site, go to the "Psychosis" section and then choose the "TV documentary" to view the video:
