The ADEPP Study
ADEPP is a study looking at the use of antidepressant for the prevention of depression following first episode psychosis.
First Episode Psychosis (FEP) is when a person experiences psychotic symptoms (for example hallucinations and delusions) for the first time.
Standard NHS care helps to treat psychotic symptoms, but young people may still struggle to return to previous social and work roles. We think this could be related to depression experienced after First Episode Psychosis.
