Abstract

Research has established the benefits of early warnings signs monitoring in the prevention of relapse for individuals with psychosis. This study explored staff views (n = 8) of the implementation of an early warning signs clinic within a day hospital of an adult mental health service. A qualitative methodology using focus groups was adopted and content analysis was used to discover themes arising from the data. Overall, the data indicated a positive view of the early warning signs clinic, with benefits for clients, staff and their relationship; and for service delivery and resources. The clinical and service implications are discussed.
