What is the refer-O-scope ?

This tool allows you to observe and act before psychosis strikes by helping you spot the precursors of the illness, which in turn can minimize its adverse effects.

The refer-O-scope is a questionnaire that gathers information on family history, drug consumption, risk factors and any changes in functioning. The tool also provides general information about psychosis, a glossary of mental illnesses, and a list of health care and support centres.

Once you have completed the questionnaire, you will receive a recommendation that will help you explain the situation to a health care professional.

Both prevention and early intervention decrease the risks that psychosis will develop.

This tool is yours. Make it work for you! Less then 30 minutes to understand and to help.
