This thesis is presented in three parts. Part One is a literature review, in which the empirical literature that investigated the relationship between a range of psychosocial variables and 'duration of untreated psychosis' (DUP) is reviewed. Part Two presents the empirical paper, describing the main qualitative study for this thesis. The study explored the experiences, perceptions and beliefs of the parents of 14 young people who had recently experienced a first episode of psychosis and who delayed seeking help from mental health services. Part Three represents a critical appraisal of the study undertaken, which provides background to the study, reflections on the process and an extended discussion of the clinical implications of the research.
