Identifying people at risk of psychosis

Read the research:

GPs rarely encounter patients with psychosis, but more commonly see patients with psychotic symptoms that do not meet diagnostic criteria for a psychotic disorder, such as hearing voices or having paranoid beliefs. One-third of these patients at risk will go on to develop psychosis within 3 years. Findings in this new study show that some GPs were not familiar with the concept of being at-risk of developing psychosis. Also, when patients met criteria for a more common mental health condition, such as depression or anxiety, GPs would not always screen for psychotic symptoms. In the podcast and video, Prof. Stanley Zammit and Daniela Strelchuk explain ways that GPs can screen for psychotic symptoms.
