Abstract

In line with the Early Psychosis Declaration issued by the World Health Organization and the International Early Psychosis Association, as well as the International Clinical Practice Guidelines for early psychosis by the latter in 2005, increasing interest in early intervention programmes is evident throughout Asia. Experience sharing and close collaboration that take into account the unique Asian context are needed to facilitate development of early psychosis services, education, and research in the region. The Asian Network of Early Psychosis has defined a set of Asian-specific principles to guide best practice in mental health care delivery for psychotic disorders in Asia. These principles are outlined in this paper.
