What treatments help young people in the early stages of psychosis?

Creating and coordinating the Early Psychosis Intervention Network (EPINET) National Data Coordinating Center (ENDCC) to accelerate science and improve treatment

Every year approximately 100,000 U.S. youth and young adults experience a first episode of psychosis, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). If untreated, psychotic symptoms can lead to significant challenges in life functioning. The longer symptoms go untreated, the greater the risk for more numerous and persistent problems.

To help develop effective service delivery for early psychosis, NIMH has established the Early Psychosis Intervention Network (EPINET). To support the exchange of information regarding new and effective treatments, NIMH has tapped Westat to create and coordinate a national platform—the EPINET National Data Coordinating Center (ENDCC).

The Westat ENDCC team includes highly experienced staff in health informatics, complex statistical analysis, data and workflow management, dissemination, service delivery, and policy. We also have the expertise to conduct and coordinate large, complex, and multilayered projects represented by EPINET.

The ENDCC will collaborate with 8 regional Hubs located at U.S. universities, including 100+ early psychosis clinics in 17 states.

Westat will provide analytic support to researchers and disseminate innovative scientific advances in treatment from these programs to the broader medical and scientific community.

This work will harness data to advance evidence-based care and improve outcomes for persons with early psychosis For more information about EPINET and the role Westat is playing in supporting this unprecedented national collaboration, see the EPINET webpage.
