The purpose of this research study is to better understand the cause and course of clinical high-risk symptoms and to monitor participants for the possible development of mental illnesses such as psychosis. Clinical high-risk symptoms can include feeling low in mood, feeling like something odd is going on, feeling suspicious, or seeing or hearing things that the person knows aren't there. Some people might worry that their thoughts are being heard or might be having more difficulty than usual coping with work, school, or relationships. For some, these early symptoms may become more severe over time. For others, the symptoms may stay the same, decrease, or go away entirely. Improving our knowledge about these symptoms and risk factors and the way that they change over time may help researchers and clinicians predict possible outcomes for individual patients and develop treatment plans that are best suited to individual patients.
At each visit, you will meet with a member of the study team and complete clinical assessments related to your recent experiences. The study also involves neurocognitive assessments, 2 blood draws, 2 MRIs, and 2 EEGs, among other assessments.
