In this lecture, given at the Institute of Psychiatry in January 2021, Jim van Os give a broad overview over what we know about psychosis.

Jim van Os: “To what degree we need brain research to understand psychosis, what we need to do for research to inform clinical care and to what degree good psychosis care involves public mental health? Maybe a bit complex here and there, but hopefully helpful in understanding how we try to make sense of psychosis”.
