Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review


The Early Psychosis Program (EPP) at St Vincent s Hospital (Melbourne), Mental Health Service, is an evidence-based clinical program. The program has adopted key knowledge from international best practice literature and clinical guidelines through the robust development of protocols to facilitate, monitor and evaluate quality practice as standard care. The integrated service model focuses on access and inclusiveness for all adult consumers in the early stages of psychosis and contact with services, rejecting the more prevalent youth model of specialist teams exclusively for people 16-25 years.
