Laboratory for Early Psychosis Research (LEAP) Center
The LEAP Center is collating data from six major Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) clinics in Massachusetts. The data are collected as part of a statewide effort coordinated by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. The overall goal of the LEAP Center is to create a state-wide learning health system for early psychosis by contributing standardized longitudinal data on a large and diverse early psychosis patient population. The LEAP Center will also develop advanced analytic approaches which can be valuable for early psychosis clinical research broadly. LEAP will create protocols and apply methods to convert large amounts of data to inform clinical practice and policy, and related national efforts.
