Targeting Cognition and Motivation in Coordinated Specialty Care for Early Psychosis (EPI-MINN)

EPI-MINN Logo

Principal Investigators:

Sophia Vinogradov, MD

Piper Meyer-Kalos, PhD

Overview

EPI-MINN consists of six Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) teams across the state of Minnesota. EPI-MINN’s goal is to help CSC teams expand measurement-based care by implementing measures of symptoms, functioning, and cognition using state-of-the-art digital platforms. Clinicians will deliver assessment results to clients, along with personalized feedback using graphical reports to inform treatment-making decisions. In addition, EPI-MINN will offer clients the opportunity to enroll in a randomized controlled trial to examine mobile cognitive training and motivation enhancement applications embedded in CSC, compared to treatment as usual.
