Abstract

People with psychotic illness, even with good treatment, do not tend to make functional recovery. They are over represented among the unemployed, the homeless, and have poorer physical health and earlier death than the general population. Despite the significant personal, societal and economic cost of these poor outcomes there has been little research into these areas. This fellowship builds on my work in vocational recovery to broaden knowledge about, and interventions for, functional recovery in first episode psychosis.
