Duration of untreated psychosis (DUP) is a reliable predictor of longitudinal psychosis trajectory. The limited availability of specialized assessment needed for early identification contributes to a lengthy average DUP in the United States. This column outlines the development of the Central Assessment of Psychosis Service (CAPS), a novel tele-evaluation service that extends specialized expertise in screening and assessment of psychosis and psychosis risk to publicly funded early psychosis clinics. Preliminary implementation outcomes among the first five CAPS sites suggest that CAPS is acceptable, appropriate, and feasible to implement. Programmatic data collection is underway and will be reported at a future date.
