A talk with Hilary Maybank about how her son has benefited from treatment at UCLA's CAPPS center.

The experience of psychosis can be bewildering and terrifying for someone afflicted, as well as for his or her family. The earliest stages of psychosis are a crucial time to intervene, and fortunately, much good can be done for a patient’s health at that time. When a mother is courageous enough to share about her son’s experience with early psychosis treatment, she deserves to be heard. This time on Brain Waves I present an interview with Hilary Maybank, mother of Nicholas, a young musician and avid surfer who has participated in treatment at CAPPS, the One Mind-funded Center for the Assessment and Prevention of Prodromal States. Their story is moving and ultimately very encouraging.

If you’d like to support research programs such as CAPPS, I invite you to make a donation to One Mind.

Hope you enjoy the feature! -Brandon
