Abstract

This paper addresses whether the concept of illness perceptions, which has been developed in the arena of chronic physical illness, can be applied to an acute mental illness such as first episode psychosis. Literature related to first episode psychosis and illness perceptions is reviewed and the potential benefits and problems of using the illness perceptions framework when trying to understand how people make sense of a first episode of psychosis are discussed. Finally, areas warranting exploration in further research are highlighted.
