This conference will explore how psychosis affects our patients across their lifetime. In the morning, delegates will be updated on how patients with a First Episode Psychosis differ and the importance of the tailored treatments of Early Intervention services.

There will then be an update on cannabis and psychosis, followed by the latest on future treatments and the novel use of Avatar therapy.

Delegates will then hear from a national expert on treatment resistant psychosis and then a session on late onset psychosis, and how this can best be treated.

Finally, there will be an update on psychosis in migrant and refugee populations.
