Study information

Scientific title

Early Detection of Psychosis via Community and Educational Organisations: A Feasibility Study

Acronym

Early Detection of Psychosis: Feasibility Study

Study hypothesis

An investigation of the impact of an early detection programme in Camden and Islington, involving close collaboration with community organisations concerned with the education and welfare of young people, including further education colleges and careers, housing and young offenders' services. This programme has been commissioned by the local Primary Care Trusts following government guidance and based on preliminary research work that has already taken place as part of this study. Staff in participating community and educational organisations for young people will receive training about psychosis and have quick and direct access to the local EIS.

The study will look at how far this early detection programme results in referral to the Camden and Islington EIS of young people at an early stage of psychosis, whether there are differences between clients referred by this and other routes, whether clients, carers and staff feel the programme is useful, and whether it improves participating staff's knowledge about psychosis and how to obtain help for people experiencing it.
