There is emerging evidence that comprehensive intervention services for youth and young adults who experience symptoms of psychosis can alter the course of this serious illness. In this talk, Dr. Bonham will review the early warning signs of psychosis and describe the individual, family, educational and vocation interventions that are helpful in addressing this condition.

She also serves as the psychiatric consultant for the New Mexico Behavioral Health Collaborative. Clinically, Dr. Bonham provides direct care through the UNMH Assertive Community Treatment team and to rural communities through the UNM Telebehavioral Health program.
