Psychosis Intervention - Clinical Guidelines 2006

Psychosis Intervention - Clinical Guidelines 2006

Published by PRMurphy
Early psychosis intervention is more than simply starting treatment early – it is an entire
approach to care. Public education, referral, assessment and treatment guided by this
approach are all different from “treatment as usual”. This approach improves outcomes in a
number of ways. It instills hope, engages clients and families, and addresses the whole person not just their symptoms. When this approach is fully embraced, we witness many positive changes – client and family empowerment, faster recovery, fewer relapses and better quality of life.
