Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With their typically early onset in late adolescence and early adulthood, psychotic disorders produce high healthcare costs through their long-term effects on productivity, physical health, and life expectancy. Although antipsychotic medication is often effective at managing positive symptoms, functional recovery rates are quite low and have not improved in recent decades.

A number of psychosocial therapies and integrated treatment programs have been proven to be effective at improving symptomatic and functional outcomes, especially in the early or preclinical stages of psychotic disorders; however, they are often unavailable in routine care or provided in an unstandardized manner. Moreover, although a large body of research has been devoted to the use of digital technologies for individualised prevention and treatment, the utility and implications of these approaches for healthcare models are not yet clear.

This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for new perspectives and debates in the field of psychosis management. We welcome original research, reviews, and methodological articles on intervention effectiveness, individualized prediction, prevention and treatment, and the implementation of innovative healthcare models as they pertain to psychotic disorders. We particularly encourage contibutions focusing on the early detection of and intervention in psychosis in young populations.
