Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other healthcare professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Science has expanded our understanding and treatment of severe mental illnesses such that today, people with psychiatric illness have a real opportunity at recovery and living fulfilling lives. Dr. Lisa Dixon will present a keynote that considers the many dimensions and definitions of recovery and the importance of a new conceptualization of recovery involving illness and treatment understanding, empowerment through peers, family support, and illness management through helping others. Dr. Dixon is currently leading the innovative program OnTrackNY, a statewide initiative designed to improve outcomes and reduce disability for the population of individuals experiencing their first episode of psychosis. Her research has helped lead the way to improve recovery efforts for people suffering from severe mental illness.

In late 2014, Dr. Dixon was awarded the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Scientific Research Award, supported by the Peter Corbin Kohn Memorial Fund. This award celebrates scientific research and advocacy and the inspiration that her work can lead to in the future. The event and award ceremony was sponsored by NAMI, and provided a forum for discussion, education and celebration with leading members of the scientific and research communities, the media, members of Congress, political leaders, academia, community leaders and the corporate sector. Read more about Dr. Dixon’s impactful work on the RAISE and within the OnTrackNY program (permission for use granted by NAMI).
