Abstract

This thesis consists of three parts. Part One, a literature review, provides a thorough examination of current research that has explored predictors of patients* engagement with mental health care. Models of illness perceptions are examined and their potential application to furthering our understanding of the mechanisms underlying engagement in psychosis is considered. Part Two presents the empirical paper, which summarises an original piece of research exploring illness perceptions and perceived stigma in relation to engagement with early intervention in psychosis services. This study was conducted as part of a wider research programme and data collection was shared with another DClinPsych trainee---Tristan Morland. Part Three presents a critical appraisal of the study undertaken. It provides a brief background to the study, reflections on the process of conducting the research and a discussion of pertinent methodological considerations.
