We include ultra-high risk (UHR), clinical high-risk (CHR) and at-risk mental state (ARMS) for psychosis in our definition of ‘early or emerging psychosis’.
Full Membership – Clinical

This includes clinical students, peer workers or anyone working in a clinical care team in early or emerging psychosis.
Full Membership – Lived Experience
Apply if you identify as a member of the early psychosis lived experience community, as:
- a young person with lived experience of psychosis; or
- a carer, family member or loved one of a young person with lived experience of psychosis.
Apply if you support AEPCC’s goals and would like to stay up-to-date with our activities but don’t meet the criteria for a full membership option. For example, you may be:
- part of a not-for-profit or non-governmental organisation that actively engages with the early psychosis community but are not directly involved in providing clinical services; or
- a clinician, researcher or otherwise have an interest in the area but are not engaged directly in early psychosis services or research.
