Wessex Psychosis Pathway

TRIumPH (Treatment and Recovery In PsycHosis) is a care pathway for people with psychosis that aims to promote good clinical practice. The pathway details the services that people experiencing psychosis can expect during different phases of their care in Wessex.

The pathway is informed by the success of other pathways (eg. stroke and cardiovascular), current evidence base and by best practice guidelines. It aligns itself to the NICE Guideline for Schizophrenia (2014), the National Audit of Schizophrenia (NAS), NICE Quality Standards (2015) and to the Access and Waiting Time Standards for Mental Health Services (2015/16).
