IU Psychotic Disorders Program

Welcome to the IU Psychotic Disorders' webpage! The Psychotic Disorders Program focuses on education, research, and treatment that will lead to improvement in the lives of individuals affected by psychotic disorders. IUPDP has two clinics: the IU Psychotic Disoders Clinic and the Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis (PARC).

Prodromal schizophrenia research is now an international movement, but any discussion of this field must acknowledge the seminal contributions of our Australian colleagues, Patrick McGorry and Allison Yung .  McGorry and Yung catalyzed this field in the mid-1990s by proposing the first objective criteria that described the at-risk mental state in prospective terms.  Since then, McGorry and Yung have pioneered a variety of assessment, treatment, and service delivery mechanisms for persons in the earliest stages of psychotic illness.

Their work has excited tremendous interest world-wide.  What started as a single research program in Australia has become an international movement, with at least 35 prodromal research centers distributed across five continents.
