The Sussex Psychosis Research interest Group (SPRiG) incorporates clinical and academic researchers within the University of Sussex, Brighton and Sussex Medical School and Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The SPRiG group is part of the Clinical and Developmental research group at the University of Sussex.
Current research includes the contribution of genetics, neuroimaging, psychological processes, health and social contexts to psychosis and well-being outcomes; the development of new psychological therapies, including third wave CBT and computer-based therapies; understanding and addressing childrens’ and adolescents’ attitudes to psychosis, to promote positive non-stigmatising schema; and earlier engagement in help seeking.
The Schizophrenia Commission has called for a radical overhaul of treatment services for people who have been given a diagnosis of schizophrenia.
The independent commision published yesterday, stated that schizophrenia remains a much misunderstood and stigmatised term- and that mental health services are not providing care of a high enough quality to help people with their recovery.
