What Is the Early Psychosis Intervention Network (EPINET)?
EPINET is a national learning health care system for early psychosis. EPINET links early psychosis clinics through standard clinical measures, uniform data collection methods, data sharing agreements, and integration of client-level data across service users and clinics. Clients and their families, clinicians, health care administrators, and scientific experts partner within EPINET to improve early psychosis care and conduct large-scale, practice-based research.
Initiated in 2019 and sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the EPINET initiative includes 8 Regional Hubs, 101 early psychosis clinics across 17 states, and the EPINET National Data Coordinating Center (ENDCC).
