Psychotic Disorders

The standard set

The ICHOM Standard Set for Psychotic Disorders is the result of hard work by a group of leading psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health experts, measurement experts, and lived experience experts. It represents the outcomes that matter most to adults and adolescents with psychosis. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their service users.
