The program was established to better understand the causes, course and treatment of "Clinical High Risk Symptoms". These symptoms include changes in thinking, mood and perception.
People experiencing the following symptoms may be at increased risk for developing an illness like psychosis:
Notions of being watched, singled out, talked about, or plotted against, even if unsure whether it is true.
Current PRIME Study: NAPLS III
The UNC Department of Psychiatry is conducting a research study to find out more about mental illness. If you have had any of the above symptoms in the past few months, are between 12-30 years old, and have not been diagnosed with psychosis, you may be eligible to participate in a study in the Prime Research Program.
You may be eligible to receive free study related medical evaluations and monetary compensation. Study participation includes multiple visits lasting 2-8 hours over 2 years. These visits will take place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
To see if you may be eligible to participate, please complete the 'Simple Survey' at the top right of the page or call (877) PRIME19 or (877) 774-6319.
