Psychosis prediction and prevention is a major focus of psychiatric research. The current main approach to identifying people at risk of psychosis, however – the Clinical High Risk approach – captures only a very small proportion of all future psychosis cases. This talk will draw on new epidemiological and developmental neuroscience findings to discuss new approaches to identifying risk for severe mental illness – and new opportunities for psychosis prevention.
