E-Detection Tool for Emerging Mental Disorders (ENTER) study.

Psychotic disorders affect many young people in the UK every year. Significant advances have been accomplished over the past decades in the early detection and support for young people at-risk for psychosis. However, most young individuals at-risk for psychosis will only be identified too late in the course of illness. This delayed detection is one of the main causes of significant negative long-term outcomes. Therefore, detecting young people in the community at the time of the onset of their problems, which is typically during the transitioning from adolescence to adulthood, is a powerful way to improve the long-term outcomes of psychosis.

The objective of the ENTER study is to improve our ability to detect people at risk of developing mental disorders, such as psychosis, using an online early detection tool. This study employs a prospective-observational design to investigate the relationship between self-administered digital detection and in-person clinical assessments. The ENTER Study is being conducted by a team of researchers from King’s College London and the University of Glasgow. ENTER is funded by the Wellcome Trust and sponsored by King’s College London.
