This study is interested in finding better ways to treat young people experiencing psychosis and helping them lead meaningful lives. To better understand the influence of psychosis on health and functioning we need to know generally how young people are going – in particular those who have not had any treatment for any mental health issues in the past.
You will need to come in to Orygen in Parkville four times to participate in a number of thinking tasks which assess your overall knowledge, ability to learn, to remember things, and concentrate. You will also need to provide basic physical health measures (i.e. height, weight) and undergo brain scans (i.e. have pictures taken of your brain) at the Royal Children’s Hospital also in Parkville.
