Structured Interview for Psychosis Risk Syndromes (SIPS)

A prescribed method for diagnosing a Clinical High Risk (CHR) syndrome for psychosis and cases of first-episode psychosis. Using SIPS, a therapist can determine whether to include current and lifetime presence of psychosis and, when psychosis has never been present, can assess for three CHR syndromes. It can be completed on individuals ages 12–35 with an IQ higher than 70. The PRIME screener should be completed before referral for a SIPS.
