Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)peer-review


People developing psychosis often seek help several times before receiving effective support and treatment, and frequently present to general healthcare staff. Therefore, awareness and knowledge of early psychosis among non-mental health nurses should be promoted. This article aims to provide an overview of psychosis, including signs and symptoms of the condition. Nurses need to be able to direct people displaying signs of early psychosis to the most appropriate services for timely assessment, support and treatment
