Psychosis Research Group
The Psychosis Research Group was involved in the Second Australian National Survey of Psychosis (2010), a landmark study that has influenced policy, and produced more than 60 publications.
The group then collaborated with University of Adelaide and University of South Australia researchers in the Australian Research Council-funded study Comorbidity Action in the North and have undertaken a series of studies on metacognitive therapy for delusions, and cognitive remediation in people with schizophrenia.
Five students have completed PhDs on the group’s projects.
