Finishing high school, going off to college, and getting a first job are visible signs of adult independence and set the foundation for future employment, income, and achievements. Though some may think that going back to school or work could be too stressful for a young person who has recently experienced a first episode of psychosis, psychosocial treatments called supported employment and supported education have been shown to be beneficial. These specialized supports help many young people get back into school, find and keep a job, or pursue both school and work goals. Doing well in school, or going to work, gives one a sense of purpose and achievement. These are important steps in recovery that can be achieved with the right supports from family, friends, and mental health professionals.
