The three broad areas of activity usually implied by psychosocial interventions in psychosis—psycho-education, behavioural family management, and cognitive behaviour therapy—are presented with their relative evidence base and strategies for delivering them through community outreach. Psychosocial interventions require a well-trained and resourced workforce, and the gap between best practice and routine delivery is manifest. Barriers and enablers are presented to show how this gap can be closed in a well-organized community outreach service.
