Reducing Untreated Psychosis among Spanish-Speaking Latinos

Immigrant Health Initiative (iHi) Seminar Series

Steven Lopez, PhD
Professor of Psychology and Social Work,
Director of Culture and Mental Health Lab, USC

Defined by a loss of contact with reality, psychosis is a mental condition often associated with serious mental illness. Left untreated it can lead to poor treatment response, lower social functioning and worse symptoms.

Efforts to reduce the duration of untreated psychosis in communities have largely been unsuccessful. Steven Lopez, professor of psychology and social work at USC, will present formative research that examines the efficacy and effectiveness of a Spanish-language community education program to increase psychosis literacy among Latinos in both Southern California and Mexico. In addition, he will present the plans for a recently funded project to reduce the duration of untreated psychosis among patients in a local immigrant community.
