People with psychosis are admitted more frequently to inpatient psychiatric units and have a longer length of stay once admitted compared to those with other psychiatric conditions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis (CBTp) reduces hospital admissions when delivered in outpatient settings and facilitates quicker symptom improvement when delivered in inpatient settings. Despite this, implementation of CBTp is exceedingly rare in practice. The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility and acceptability of a conjoint single-session CBTp intervention + FOCUS digital mental health intervention for people with psychosis admitted to inpatient psychiatry units.
