Other study
Delays in treatment for recent onset psychotic disorders are associated with worse long-term outcomes. However, there are few evidence-based techniques being implemented by community providers to help individuals rapidly seek treatment once psychotic symptoms emerge. This study seeks to use different tools (i.e., questionnaires and brief screening interviews) to better identify individuals who need mental health services and find out what technique is most effective at engaging people in treatment. Treatment services are offered through the Early Diagnosis and Preventative Treatment (EDAPT) Clinic, which provides outpatient mental health services for individuals ages 12-30 across the spectrum of early psychosis, including psychosis with prominent mood symptoms and individuals at high risk of developing psychosis.
