- Psychotic Symptoms [ Time Frame: two years ]Psychotic symptoms were assessed and scored using the Structured Interview for the Prodromal Syndrome (SIPS) and the Scale of Prodromal Symptoms (SOPS). The SOPS provides a measure of four domains of symptoms, including positive, negative, disorganized and general symptoms. The Positive Symptom sub-scale score reported is the sum of all five symptom items in the Positive Symptom sub-scale. The Positive Symptom sub-scale assesses psychotic symptoms, each item on a scale of 0-6. The sum scale score is 0-30, with 30 indicating severe psychotic symptoms, while 0 indicates no psychotic symptoms.

No Intervention: Control group
This is the control arm. Participants will be offered only case management. Participants may seek outside treatment, without guidance from study staff.
Experimental: Family-aided Assertive Community Treatment
This is the experimental intervention arm for high-risk-for-psychosis participants. The intervention includes psychiatric drugs (aripiprazole; fluoxetine; bupropion; sertraline; lamotrigine), psychoeducational multifamily group treatment and supported employment and education .
Drug: aripiprazole; fluoxetine; bupropion; sertraline; lamotrigine
Oral, daily, generally at lower than manufacturer's recommendations
Other Names:Behavioral: Psychoeducational multifamily group treatment
Families and patients are educated on psychobiology of psychosis and trained in coping skills to avoid psychosis by reducing stress and optimizing social environment at home, school, work
Other Names:Behavioral: Supported employment and education
Participants are provided direct assistance, guidance and ongoing support to gain employment and succeed in their educational goals.
The study is structured as a cutoff, regression discontinuity design, in which lower risk-for-psychosis participants will not be treated by protocol but followed up for two years. Those at higher risk will be treated with anti-psychotic, antidepressant and mood stabilizing medications by symptom indications, and systematically provided psychoeducational multifamily group treatment, supported education and employment, and intensive clinical case management, using key elements of Assertive Community Treatment. Both arms of the study will be followed for two years and assessed at 6, 12, and 24 months. Outcome measures include rates of conversion to psychosis, relapse of psychosis, development of psychotic disorder diagnoses, levels of positive, negative and general symptoms, social and vocational functioning, family functioning, and neurocognitive functioning.
The six sites include Sacramento, California; Salem Oregon; and surrounding counties, Ypsilanti and Washtenaw County, Michigan; Portland, Maine; Albuquerque, New Mexico and Glen Oaks, New York.
In addition to symptomatic and functional outcomes, impact on incidence of psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia, will be assessed, as will cost-benefit effects.
