About The Program

This project builds upon a Chinese government initiative (the “686 Project”) to transform mental health services and offer treatment to most persons with severe mental disorders.

This initiative provides a time-limited opportunity to identify and assess individuals with psychosis who have remained untreated.

The study assesses cognition prior to antipsychotic treatment and compares this group with treated individuals and healthy controls. Recruitment takes place in rural areas in northwestern China.
