“36th Annual Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference”

November 15, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

The Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference is an annual meeting at which the advances in schizophrenia research are reviewed by experts in the field. This year’s meeting will cover early identification and management of first episode psychoses based on knowledge obtained and disseminated from a NIMH funded trial.  Attendees will learn and review immune-inflammatory mechanisms that play a role in subgroups of persons with schizophrenia, especially gluten sensitivity and ongoing work to remediate this sensitivity.  Participants will hear about transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and its potential use in schizophrenia.  From a case example, attendees will learn about clarifying diagnosis and optimizing medications in persons with mental illness in a residential facility.  Finally, attendees will hear from people with serious mental illness who will share their stories of working as Peer Specialists and of using music to help support their recovery.
