Hybrid (Zoom and face-to-face)
We review whether early intervention strategies can make a difference to the long term outcome of psychotic disorders using data from a series of studies in Hong Kong, comparing with key international studies. We learn that early Intervention can indeed produce long term improvement in functional outcome, reduced suicides and hospitalisations in a cost effective manner. Relapse prevention in early stages can also reduce treatment refractoriness and suicide outcomes.
