IEPA is proud to announce the winners of the 2018 Future Leaders Awards
Join us on Wednesday, 10 October 2018 for the
Awards presentation at 11:15 AM.

Albert Russell Powers, MD, PhD
Yale University


Treating and devising new approaches to patients in the earliest phases of psychotic illness is Dr. Powers’ passion and life’s work. Receiving the Future Leader Award from IEPA is such an honor because it validates this passion and welcomes him into a community of researchers whose work has inspired and laid the foundation for his own.  He is thrilled to join IEPA and looks forward to contributing work that will move knowledge forward for the sake of patients and their families.


Jai Shah, MD, FRCPC
McGill University


With this award, Dr. Shah hopes to contribute to IEPA’s mission of an integrative (rather than purely reductionist) vision for early intervention, whereby varied methods and approaches – neurobiology, services research, implementation science and more – are employed to welcome young people from all walks of life into flexible and personalised care, in psychosis and beyond.



Your Feedback is Important!
Our community plays an integral role in shaping the future of IEPA, and of early intervention in mental health, globally. To help us better understand the diverse needs, wants and perspectives of the IEPA network, we are inviting you to take part in this short survey. Your feedback is important. The survey should only take 15 minutes to complete. We thank you for your participation.


All speakers MUST register to attend the conference.

If your submission has been accepted and you haven’t yet registered to attend the IEPA 11 conference, we ask that you please register now so that we can finalize the 2018 program and prepare the abstract book for printing. Presenters not registered by 31st July 2018 may have their abstract excluded from the IEPA 11 Abstract Program Book.

 Attendees must have an IEPA conference account to complete registration. Conference accounts are NOT linked to your membership number; these are two separate numbers. If you have already submitted an abstract, please use the same email to login.
