Cardiometabolic Risk in First Episode Schizophrenia-Spectrum Disorder Patients: Baseline Results from the Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode Early Treatment Program (RAISE-ETP) Study Christoph U Correll

Background: Schizophrenia individuals have high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality yet, risk status and moderators/mediators in the earliest illness stages are less clear. Methods: Baseline results of the NIMH-funded Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) study, collected at 34 sites in 21 US states from 07/2010-07/2012. Participants were patients aged 15-40 years with research-confirmed diagnoses of first-episode psychosis and

Associations beetween diet, sedentary behavior, cardiovascular fitness, and 10-years risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with schizophrenia Helene Speyer

Background: Patients with schizophrenia have a 20 years reduction in life expectancy, mainly due to cardiovascular disease (CVD).Aim: To investigate possible associations between diet, sedentary behaviour, cardiovascular fitness, and 10 years risk of CVD in patients with schizophrenia.Method: Dietary and sedentary behaviour were assessed in patients with schizophrenia and waist circumference above 102 cm (male) and 88 cm (female). We used a food frequency questionnaire and physical activity scale.

Borderline personality features and development of psychosis in an Ultra High Risk (UHR) population: a case control study Andrew Thompson

Background: There is clinical uncertainty whether Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) traits in those with an at risk mental state (ARMS) have an effect on the risk of transition to psychosis. We aimed to investigate the relationship between baseline BPD features, risk of transition and type of psychotic disorder experienced. Method: A case-control study of Ultra High Risk for psychosis (UHR) patients treated at the clinic, between 2004 and 2007.

Detection and Prediction of Psychosis in a Clinical High-Risk Chinese Sample: Turning Challenges into Opportunities in an Eastern Social Context TianHong Zhang

Introduction: Chinese psychiatrists have gradually focused on those who are deemed to be at clinical high-risk (CHR) for psychosis; however, it is unknown whether those CHR individuals from a different cultural background than previously studied would convert to psychosis. In other words, does cultural context influence the likelihood of conversion? Method: 2101 consecutive new subjects ages 15-45 were recruited at their first visit to the Shanghai Mental Health Center (SMHC).

Early Detection and Intervention in Two US Centers and a US-China Collaboration Kristen A Woodberry

In the United States, early detection (ED) and intervention (EI) have developed in the context of a largely private insurance system. Mental health services are reimbursed for diagnosable disorders only and to a more limited extent than physical disorders. Mental health prevention and EI services are not covered. ED and EI services and centers were initiated, beginning in the mid-1990s, with a mixture of private and federal grant funding and insurance-reimbursable care within innovative clinics and academic centers.

10-year outcome study of an early intervention programme for psychosis in Hong Kong compared with standard care service Sherry Chan

Despite convincing evidence on the short-term benefits of early intervention (EI) service for psychosis, long-term outcome studies are limited with inconsistent results. Current study has examined the 10-year outcomes of patients with first-episode psychosis who received two-year EI service (EASY) compared with those who received standard care (SC) in Hong Kong using historical control design.
