Measuring recovery from psychotic illness in central Vietnam

Author:  Seiji Humphries

Principle Supervisor:

Field Supervisor:

Study sites: Thua Thien Hue Province and Da Nang city

Description:

Seiji Humphries from Queensland University of Technology’spsychology school returned to Hue in late February to continue the data collection for his project, which commenced last year with the support of the centre. His project is inspired by surprising previous research indicating that recovery from psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia may be better in some developing countries when compared with the developed world. 
There have been very few previous studies on this topic in Vietnam so Seiji hopes that his research will contribute to the understanding of these serious mental disorders, both in this country and more widely. He will work closely with Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy staff to identify people who have recently had their first psychotic episodeand conduct a detailed assessment of their social and clinical functioning and quality of life. 

The project will aim to recruit participants through psychiatric facilities such as the Hue Provincial Psychiatric Hospital, Da Nang City Psychiatric Hospitaland through health workers in the community.
