Ilonen, T. Mental Health In India. Find out more :. These studies, focusing on patients with early psychosis, provide an opportunity to identify factors associated with prevention and treatment outcomes and offer results suggesting how early intervention in psychosis might be the best way to reduce the social and medical burden of schizophrenia. A screening clinician will respond within three working days. The rationale for EI has been largely derived from two lines of evidence. In the past decade, international support has grown from: Ian Falloon's prodromal intervention project in Great Britain Falloon et aI.

While psychotic disorders are still poorly understood, there is a growing consensus amongst researchers that they are neurodevelopmental in nature, which means that they are due to an either abnormal development or by damage of the brain at an early age Jaaro-Peled et al. A neurodevelopmental model of psychotic disorders posits four main stages in the progression of psychotic disorders: the risk stage, which typically occurs before 12; the prodomal stage, between 12 and 18 years old; the psychosis stage, usually between 18 and 24 years old; and the chronic disability stage, in individuals over 24 years old Insel, This trajectory suggests a new approach to the treatment of psychotic disorders, where the psychosis of late teenage years corresponds to the late stage of the disorder, and where intervention should begin as early as possible, if possible at the risk stage.
The variation in early intervention services provision and implementation across the world makes it complex to evaluate their effectiveness, but several studies have attempted to review the evidence. Petersen et al. The study found significantly better results with the experimental group during the two-year duration of the intervention, but no statistically significant difference between the two groups ten years later.
It is worth noting that a follow-up study with a five-year treatment found no significant difference between experimental and control groups, but these contradictory results could be attributed to the fact that many early interventions attributes such as psychoeducation and family involvement have since become mandatory in community mental health services Albert et al. The study demonstrated emerging evidence for early intervention services for individuals with first-episode psychosis, but questioned whether gains were maintained over the long term.
In the future, true early intervention may be based on complex risk profiles including environmental and genetic factors to detect at-risk individuals in the earliest stages of psychotic disorders. At present, the evidence suggests that in order to assess the effectiveness of early interventions in psychosis services, research needs to be replicated with larger and longer trials. Albert, N. Five years of specialised early intervention versus two years of specialised early intervention followed by three years of standard treatment for patients with a first episode psychosis: randomised, superiority, parallel group trial in Denmark OPUS II.
