Topic: Research to Improve the Health of Young People with Early Psychosis

The research study focuses on developing a co-designed lifestyle intervention aimed at improving the physical health of young people with early psychosis. The research team is currently seeking participation from carers or parents whose loved one is a current or past client of the Youth Early Psychosis Program at Headspace. The aim is to explore their views on the physical health and wellbeing of young people with early psychosis and what can be done to improve their physical health.
