If you or someone you know is a young person experiencing psychosis outside Oregon, the Early Intervention for Psychosis Program Directory v.3 features a nationwide listing of programs. It is up to date as of October 14th, 2015.
It is not uncommon for the diagnosis process to be ongoing over time. Some of the possible diagnoses require six months observation to confirm. You may be given a “rule-out” diagnosis, which means that additional observation or testing is needed to determine whether this diagnosis is correct.
Usually a preliminary diagnosis is made from the first interview, confirmed within approximately the first thirty days, and revisited periodically throughout treatment.
The following information will be important in any assessment:
How do you perceive what is going on- what do you observe? What changes or possible “symptoms” have you noticed:
- Current illnesses and treatment you may be receiving
- What medicines or supplements are you taking?
- Physical changes with your body
- Changes in your sleep and appetite
- Changes in your moods
- Changes in your thought process
- Illnesses that you or other family members have experienced
- Injuries. Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
- Allergies and adverse reactions to medicines
- Drug use and reactions
- Learning disabilities
- What do others around you observe (sometimes with neurochemical changes others notice changes when the individual doesn’t)
- How are these changes affecting your ability to focus at work/school and home?
- How are they affecting relationships with others?
- How are they affecting your ability to meet personal goals and priorities?
- What information do you and your supporters have, and what do you need?
- Do you have a strong support network?
- Is your living situation stable and supportive of your healing process?
- What are your personal goals and priorities, and are these changes interfering?
Medical tests which EASA routinely recommends for people experiencing psychosis include:
- CBC with differential
- Chemistry panel (with liver enzymes, electrolytes, BUN, Cr, calcium)
- Urine drug screen
- Urinalysis, with microscopy
- B-12 and folate
- Thyroid screen (TSH, T4)
- MRI or CT
- Other tests indicated by additional medical conditions identified
- A clarification of preliminary diagnosis. In some cases, it may take a while to get a final diagnosis.
- Identification of the type of treatment which is most likely to be helpful
- Initial goals for treatment, based on your needs and priorities
