New tool predicts incidence of psychosis 

News Content

Scientists at the University of Cambridge have developed a tool capable of predicting the number of individuals expected to develop a first episode of psychotic disorder -disorders characterised by altered perceptions such as hallucinations or delusions – within regions of England and Wales. The tool available at www.PsyMaptic.org, works by taking into account various factors, which are known to affect the incidence rate of these disorders, including sex, age, ethnicity and population density. The PsyMaptic research project, which was funded by the Wellcome Trust and the NIHR and published in the BMJ Open will enable mental health service commissioners and local authorities to better tailor resources to meet local need.
