The Digital Research and Interventions for Volitional Enhancement (DRIVE) lab is a digital health research group at UCSF headed by Dr. Danielle Schlosser, PhD.
The ultimate goal of PRIME is to provide a safe community for young people with schizophrenia and help with achieving goals to improve quality of life and regain a sense of control. The DRIVE lab has collaborated with innovators such as the IDEO design firm, Zauber software boutique lab, and directly engaged those with schizophrenia and their family members in the design and development process. Clinical trials for the use of PRIME and its efficacy will be underway in Summer 2014. Dr. Schlosser and team are very excited to see how PRIME will continue to evolve into a personalized, effective intervention for recent-onset schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.
