Coordinated specialty care services are critical for people with first episode psychosis (FEP), but for historically underserved racial and ethnic minority communities much greater attention is needed to overcome the multiple barriers to receiving these services. Given the barriers that underserved communities face when seeking care for early psychosis, this session will emphasize the importance of understanding individuals and family member experiences. In this session, we will begin by examining the pathways to care for a diverse group of individuals from the onset of a FEP to their entry into coordinated specialty care. We will explore how help seeking decisions were influenced by the misattribution of symptoms, stigma and self-reliance, and how contacts with the health care system was a critical juncture in the pathway to care that expedited or delayed entry into care. We will describe and present data on the experiences of several Black families and their points of contact prior to coordinated specialty care and how that can influence individual outcomes, such as quality of life. We will then review the importance of community outreach and campaigns to promote coordinated specialty care, like the campaign designed for the Spanish-speaking Latinx community in California.
