The Early Intervention in Psychosis Waiting Time Measurement ensures that:
- Anyone with an emerging psychosis and their families and key supporters can have timely access to specialist Early Intervention in Psychosis Services which provide interventions suited to age and phase of illness
- Individuals experiencing first episode psychosis have consistent access to a range of evidence-based biological, psychological and social interventions as recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for psychosis and schizophrenia in children and young people and in adults, and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guideline for psychosis with co-existing substance misuse
- Care is provided equitably - taking into account higher rates of psychosis in certain groups who may experience difficulties in accessing traditional services.
