Summary Statement:

Dr. Graham’s expertise is in the areas of early identification and treatment of psychotic illnesses, and her clinical work, research and teaching all focus on this. Psychotic disorders are common, often debilitating, illnesses. Her belief is that with early recognition and appropriate intervention the degree of disability can be substantially lessened. Dr. Graham is Medical Director of OASIS, UNC Department of Psychiatry’s multi-disciplinary specialty clinic treating adolescents and young adults in the early years of a psychotic illness. This clinic combines evidence based medication management, individual therapy, substance abuse treatment, family therapy & education, Supportive Employment and Education Services and Peer Support Services to address symptom and functional recovery of the clients.  Dr. Graham’s teaching responsibilities include resident education in psychotic disorders and in Integrative Psychiatry, the evidence based use of complementary medical approaches in the management of mental health disorders.
