PSYcHE is a 5 year programme funded by the Health Research Board (HRB), which focuses on building knowledge and partnerships to help develop and evaluate psychological interventions in youth mental health, with a particular emphasis on early psychosis.
The overarching aim of this research program is to improve psychosocial supports available to young people with serious mental health disorders by:
- Gathering evidence about predictors of psychosocial function in early psychosis and current evidence-based interventions
- Developing and evaluating novel interventions tailored to the needs of young people
- Using the knowledge that results to support translation into clinical practice
