This past Saturday a few people from our team went to the NAMI Southwestern PA Annual Education Conference! We took the SOVA project with us! We had a table where we shared materials, talked about our project and made a lot of connections with other groups and individuals in Southwestern Pennsylvania. We hope that by spreading the word about our research study that we can get more youth and parents involved in developing this supportive online community!
At the conference we heard from many different speakers and panels about early onset psychosis, mental health and self care, and doing advocacy work! Be on the lookout over the next few weeks as we give you an update about what we learned!
