Tracking Outcomes in Psychosis

Study Description

Tracking Outcomes in Psychosis

The investigators propose to study the brain processes that result in thought and language disorder and influence outcomes seen in patients with schizophrenia using a combination of brain scans and clinical assessments. The project will assess patients at various stages of psychosis (Clinical high risk, first episode and chronic stage >3 years of illness) referred to the Prevention and Early Intervention in Psychosis Programme using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI scans). To track the outcome of this illness, investigators will follow-up patients over 3 years and collect MRI scans over four sessions for each first episode patient, and two sessions for clinical high risk patients, chronic patients, and healthy controls. Participants will also complete a clinical assessment examining symptoms and functioning as per the current clinical practice within the PEPP program at each scanning session.
