Instructor: Jessica Pollard, PhD
Dr. Pollard is a Licensed Psychologist, an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine, and Clinical Director of the Specialized Treatment Early in Psychosis (STEP) Program. After completing her B.A. at UMaine Farmington, Dr. Pollard earned her MA and PhD at the University of Connecticut where she studied jail diversion programs, particularly the relationship between perceived coercion and outcomes, gender and trauma specific treatment for justice involved women, and other services research for the commissioner's office of the State of Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addictions Services (DMHAS). During graduate school, Dr. Pollard had an influential clinical experience of working with a young person in the early stages of psychosis, which inspired her to pursue training in early intervention at Yale, where she completed a 2-year fellowship and served as STEP's first project director. She returned to her home state of Maine, founding an early intervention service for psychosis there before returning to Yale to join the faculty in 2013. Dr. Pollard's interests include refining early intervention, prevention, and detection for psychosis; workforce development in Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) for early psychosis; successful transition from CSC programs; and, coming full circle, the overlap between first episode psychosis and the justice system. She is Program Chair for Mental Health for the American Public Health Association (APHA), Chair Elect for the Mental Health Section of APHA, and a past recipient of the APHA Mental Health Section Award "For Excellence in the Field of Mental Health."  Disclosure: Jessica Pollard, PhD has declared that no conflict of interest, Relevant Financial Relationship or Relevant Non-Financial Relationship exists.
