Dutch Prediction of Psychosis Study
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
The Dutch Prediction of Psychosis Study (DUPS) is a prospective study of predictors of the transition to psychosis in help-seeking adolescents at high risk for developing a first psychotic episode. The aim of the project is supplemented by a systematic account of the pathways to care, the disabilities and needs and the therapeutic interventions that are currently used in this population.
Multi-level assessment includes behavioral and cognitive variables as well as structural brain imaging and neurophysiological data. Subjects will be followed up at regular intervals during (at least) two years to monitor the development of their (psychotic) symptoms. This will allow us to analyze the predictive validity of the variables.
