Nev Jones

Nev Jones is Assistant Professor of Mental Health Law and Policy at the University of South Florida.
She is a community psychologist by training, and currently an assistant professor of mental health law and policy at the University of South Florida, affiliate faculty of the Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute and (affiliate) clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at Yale University. In addition, she serves as a consultant-trainer for OnTrackNY/USA. A former recipient of specialized early psychosis services, she has been involved with early intervention research, policy and programming in the US since beginning my graduate studies, and an IEPA member since 2014.

Current early psychosis research projects focus on patient outcomes following discharge from specialty EIP services, interventions designed to strengthen program capacity to successfully engage clients and families with histories of trauma and socioeconomic disadvantage, and programmatic work in the area of supported education. Broader funded research in youth/young adult mental health zeroes in on the role of emergency and crisis services in pathways to and through care across diagnostic groups.

As a service user and family member, she is deeply committed to finding ways to support greater collaboration between young people, carers, providers and researchers.
