UC Davis
Schizophrenia Research and Education Program

The UC Davis Medical Center is conducting a study of persons experiencing a first schizophrenic break or showing initial symptoms of this illness.  New developments have indicated that early diagnosis and targeted therapies can prevent or reduce the profound cognitive and social skill impairment that generally results from schizophrenia.

The EDAPT (Early Diagnosis and Preventative Treatment) Clinic at the University of California, Davis Medical Center is part of the clinical health care services provided by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.

The program serves individuals who are experiencing their first episode of psychotic symptoms, as well as those who may be at risk for or showing early indicators of these symptoms.

The goal of the clinic is to intervene early as possible in order to prevent the development of disease-related deficits and treatment-related side effects, and to empower individuals to become active participants in their treatment and progress towards their personal, social and occupational goals.

Who is Eligible
Males and females ages 12-40
Individuals motivated for intensive multidisciplinary treatment
