The RAISE Early Treatment Program (ETP) is a research study that will compare two different ways of providing treatment for people experiencing the early stages of schizophrenia and related illnesses. Both types of treatment emphasize a comprehensive initial evaluation at the earliest point after symptoms appear. ETP treatments might include medication, psychosocial therapies, and supportive services that address the multiple problems associated with these illnesses.
Dr. John Kane from the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, NY is directing the ETP study. The study will take place in 35 community mental health centers and hospital outpatient mental health facilities in 21 states across the nation. For a complete list of the ETP treatment facilities see Study Locations. If you are interested in learning more about the study, please contact the ETP location nearest you.
