This special episode of The Medical Mind is co-presented by SMI Adviser, a Clinical Support System for Serious Mental Illness; and by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. SMI Adviser is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and administered by the American Psychiatric Association.

This episode is hosted by John Moe, an author and podcaster who interviews people and writes about mental health, and Dr. Ken Duckworth, a psychiatrist and the Chief Medical Officer of NAMI. They are joined by Dr. Sarah Kopelovich, a clinical psychologist who specializes in evidence-based treatments for schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders. The hosts and Dr. Kopelovich discuss the science behind Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an evidence-based talking therapy that concentrates on how an individual’s thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are connected. The hosts also interview an individual who has benefited greatly from CBT about his recovery journey.
