EPI-MINN: Targeting Cognition and Motivation in Coordinated Specialty Care for Early Psychosis: A National Comparison Study


This is a study enrolling patients receiving care at early psychosis specialty coordinated care programs across the United States. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. The first group will use two mobile apps, computerized brain training and a motivational smart phone app, for a period of 12 weeks. The other group will participate in their regular clinical care. There will be 4 study timepoints: intake, post-training, 6-month follow up, and 12-month follow up. There is also an optional interview about experiences of loneliness.
