RHINEBECK, N.Y. -- Astor Services for Children and Families has released a new book on child psychosis.

“Early Identification and Palliative Care for Psychotic Disorders in Children and Youth" presents the findings of a two-year study, including ways to develop and study early screening, intervention and strategies for assisting youth at risk for psychosis.

“In children, as with anyone, psychosis is a difficult and debilitating condition of the mind,” said lead researcher Suzanne Button. “By identifying at-risk youth that may be vulnerable to developing psychosis early on, and applying interventions to treat the conditions, children can learn coping skills and strategies that will help them acquire and build resiliency for their healthy development.”

An $80,000 grant by the American Mental Health Foundation funded the study.

“We are grateful to the American Mental Health Foundation for supporting our work to raise the quality of life to children and their families,” said Button. “Thanks to their grant, Astor’s clinical teams and staff are better informed, allowing youth to receive more of the care they need for productive and fulfilling lives.”

The Rhinebeck-based nonprofit provides behavioral and educational services for families and their children in the Mid-Hudson Valley and the Bronx.
