New Iris Guidelines Launched on World Mental Health Day 2012
These guidelines are for service providers and commissioners of mental health services to help them to ensure high quality and cost effective delivery of care and support for people experiencing a first episode of psychosis. Anticipating a new era of practice and policy development, these 2012 guidelines describe the key elements of service design for the delivery of Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP).
Fourteen years on from the original IRIS guidelines, EIP has become established as a preferred model of service for young people with emerging psychosis and their families
EARLY INTERVENTION IN PSYCHOSIS IRIS NETWORK
The Early Intervention in Psychosis IRIS Network supports the promotion of EI in psychosis. First formed to support the National EI Programme (2004-2010) this network brings together elected EI regional leads to share issues and solutions.
