It's November! We are excited for all that the cold weather brings. Not only is Thanksgiving at the end of the month, but November is also Career Development month. Accordingly, our first story this month talks about how OnTrackNY can help you with your career goals. We'd also like to share a story about a Minnesotan jazz musician who uses his music to express himself and cope with psychosis. We have also included an easy fall recipe.

From Early Intervention Client to Researcher

From Early Intervention Client to Researcher

If you’ve ever wondered if there are coordinated specialty care clients who graduate from their programs and go on to play significant roles as leaders in the development and evaluation of early psychosis services, there are actually more than you might guess. Dr. Nev Jones is one of them. Diagnosed with schizophrenia in the mid-2000s and initially treated in one of the earliest US specialized first episode psychosis clinics, Nev was ultimately able to return to school, complete a PhD in psychology and a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford, and now works as an assistant professor and mental health services research at the University of South Florida. Since graduate school, Nev has worked with or for an array of different coordinated specialty care programs in the US, bringing first hand insights into what matters most to bear on her research and program development work. Nev has also been a champion in the area of participatory research and the elevation of family and young adult priorities, values and perspectives in this rapidly growing field.

In addition to research in Florida, Nev both collaborates with OnTrackNY and serves as a consultant-trainer with a focus on the peer support component of OnTrackNY services. Right now she’s conducting in-depth interviews with former OnTrackNY clients and families in order to understand individual and family experiences during and following discharge. This is a critically important and under-researched topic, with significant implications for informing the development of post-discharge supports for both young people and their families. If you’re interested in getting involved, see the research recruitment announcement below.
