At risk mental state is the clinical presentation of those considered at risk of developing psychosis or schizophrenia.[1] Such states were formerly considered treated as prodromes, emerging symptoms of psychosis, but this view is no longer prevalent as as a prodromal period can not be confirmed unless the emergence of the condition has occurred.

The original specialist service for those with subclinical symptoms of psychosis was The Pace Clinic[2] in Melbourne, Australia.[3] Other clinics have since developed around the world.[4][5][6][7]

There has been some considerable development of how the concept can be applied clinically.[8][9][10][11]

Assessed during the structured interview developed by PACE.[12]
