MHA of Westchester is excited to participate in a pilot study of OnTrack>The Game, a cutting edge technology to enhance our OnTrackNY@ MHA services for young adults experiencing a first episode of psychosis.  Online role-playing games offer a new and potentially powerful tool to teach skills that can teach and reinforce positive attitudes and behaviors and build motivation for change.  

OnTrack>The Game is being developed to assist individuals participating in services, their family members and providers.  It builds upon the findings of the NIMH RAISE-IES (Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode—Implementation and Evaluation Study, and is being developed by the Center for Social Innovation (C4) with Dr. Lisa Dixon and her team at the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene, Inc. (RFMH) at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University. Read more.
