Research in Early Psychosis

Our Early Psychosis team works with faculty from Washington State University, and other external collaborators as part of the Center of Excellence in Early Psychosis to advance research on early psychosis, particularly as it relates to promoting evidence based practice, implementation science and clinical outcomes. 

Our studies focus on a wide range of topics in Early Psychosis, ranging from family caregiver support and engagement such as our Family Bridger Pilot Program, to supporting cardiovascular health and wellness in coordinated specialty care programs and more.
