International Early Psychosis Association, and ORYGEN Research Centre, Locked Bag 10/35, Poplar Road, Parkville, Victoria 3052, Australia.


International declarations that articulate core values, goals and standards have played an important role in enhancing the quality of care in a number of areas of medicine. This document attempts this task for early intervention in psychotic disorders. It was originally inspired by the St Vincents declaration on the care of diabetes and carefully developed by David Shiers and Jo Smith with support from the Initiative to Reduce the Impact of Schizophrenia, National Institute for Mental Health in England and Rethink, resulting in the UK-focused Newcastle Declaration. The World Health Organization and the International Early Psychosis Association then collaborated to produce an international version of the declaration, which articulates the universal principles of early intervention and tries to blend these with local capacities and cultural diversity.
