Best practice in early psychosis intervention for Australian Indigenous communities

Professor Stanley Catts

No attempt at cultural adaptation of early psychosis intervention (EPI) for young Indigenous Australians has been published. Our aim was to identify promising elements of best practice relevant to mainstream mental health service (MHS) delivery of EPI to Indigenous communities.  A scoping review of the published and unpublished Australian Indigenous health literature was carried out. A validity testing strategy for qualitative research, triangulation, was then used to identify promising service models.

We found that almost no high quality studies evaluating the effectiveness of mainstream MHSs adapted for Indigenous Australians have been published in the scientific literature. Our review identified three examples of a promising mainstream service model with potential for delivering EPI (the Indigenous sub-team), and two elements applicable to best practice EPI in rural and remote services (telepsychiatry and specialist psychiatric outreach assistance).
