Early intervention in psychosis: Opportunities for secondary prevention (pages 487-502)

A description of an emerging paradigm is presented which places emphasis upon secondary prevention in psychosis. It is argued that the first two or three years following a first episode of psychosis is a crucial period for high‐quality psychosocial and biological interventions and a time slot which may influence recovery and long‐term outcome. Factors contributing to long‐term outcome as possible areas for secondary prevention are reviewed.
