Psychosis risk syndrome at risk?
Article in The Sydney Morning Herald says Patrick McGorry has changed his mind about including attenuated psychosis syndrome in DSM-5.

Even if it is a valid syndrome, a Cochrane review says there is no conclusive evidence that people in the prodrome of psychosis can be helped.
