Psychiatry Advisor interviewed Fabio Ferrarelli, MD, PhD, and Lisa B. Dixon, MD, MPH, to discuss the implications of the Recovery After an Initial Schizophrenia Episode (RAISE) project. The purpose of this NIMH-funded project was to develop and test a coordinated specialty care (CSC) intervention for patients with early psychosis. It specifically investigated the effectiveness of NAVIGATE, a CAC approach that consisted of 4 manual-based interventions: psychopharmacology using a computerized decision support system (COMPASS), individual resilience therapy, family therapy and psychoeducation, and supportive employment and education.
