About the IU Psychotic Disorders Program
The Indiana University Psychotic Disorders Program (IUPDP) was established in 2008 in order to serve individuals with schizophrenia and their families within the state of Indiana and beyond. As a center for clinical care, research, and education, our faculty and staff work with individuals suffering from psychotic illnesses in every phase of the illness, in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
The clinical focus of IUPDP is to provide state of the art, individualized therapy to each patient with a focus on developing and maintaining strong therapeutic alliances in order to support recovery and prevent relapse. In addition to standard treatments for psychosis, our research mission and clinical goals align in providing novel therapeutics to individuals who are interested. IUPDP is a training site for Indiana University School of Medicine students and residents, as well as other medical professionals and undergraduate students.
