Daily function in children and adolescents with psychosis (D-BUP)

In collaboration with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Centre, Mental Health Services in the Capital Region of Denmark, this study investigates the daily life functioning impairments in children and adolescents with psychosis.

Patients with the same psychotic disorder may have highly different levels of adaptive functioning (for instance in terms of communication, school and social function). This study aims at identifying potential associations between psychiatric symptom dimensions, impairments of neuro- and social cognitive functions as well as psychophysiological functions and the level of adaptive function in children and adolescents with early onset, non-affective psychoses. Identifying such associations is relevant for the development of interventions to improve adaptive functioning.

 

Between 2014 and 2017, the study includes 35 children and adolescents with psychosis and 35 healthy controls. The study collaborates with the Attention study also carried out at CINS/CNSR.
