Psychosis is a terrifying syndrome, as I know first hand. It can disrupt the lives of afflicted young people, as it usually develops just as they are becoming adults.
What if young people at risk for developing a psychotic disorder could know of the danger ahead of time, and choose to engage in preventive therapy? They would have a better chance at a healthy life. In the experimental research and care facilities of the North American Prodrome Longitudinal Study (NAPLS), directed by Dr. Tyrone Cannon of Yale University, ultra-high risk teens are offered this opportunity.
