Abstract

Advance statements represent a promising but relatively unexplored means to empower young people with first-episode psychosis to actively participate in their own mental health care. This qualitative study explored the use of advance statement's for young people with first-episode psychosis, as well as their carers and clinicians, and provided actionable feedback on how to better meet the needs and preferences of these key stakeholders and more effectively implement advance statements in clinical settings.
