EPOS at-risk for psychosis indicators

EPOS at-risk for psychosis indicators for a hazard rate of 20% for a transition to psychosis within the projects' 18-months follow-up period (EPOS group 2006), e.g. more pronounced positive psychotic symptomatology, lower levels of global functioning and premorbid adjustment.

These data await further evaluation and publication. Potential end-users are governmental and non-governmental agencies and organizations, clinicians and researchers in the areas of mental health care and policy.

As the main benefit, the acquired knowledge will help to implement and sustain early detection and prevention programmes adapted to European mental health care systems and the needs of the help-seeking individuals.
