dc.description.abstract Despite treatment uncertainties, early psychosis (EP) assessments and the clinical markers of EP are gaining reliability (Loewry, Bearden, Johnson, Raine and Cannon, 2005). Assessment and appropriate referral in the early phases of the disease shortens the Duration of Untreated Psychosis (DUP) that directly translates into improved long-term outcomes (Spencer, Birchwood and McGovern, 2001). Identifying youth at risk and intervening as early as possible improves life trajectories and reduces the prevalence of mental health problems in adulthood (Kirby, 2008). An educational guide for educators will improve the detection of EP in high school students, increase awareness about youth mental health, and will help to create long-term changes in belief systems related to mental illness in Canadian society. en_US
