This recent landscape was inspired by reminiscing about my past, having once lived there overlooking the mountains.

Page 3 Date Time Venue 16/05/19 1pm-2pm RBWH Education Centre Developing a recovery plan is an essential thing to do for anyone with a mental health challenge. A recovery plan is about capturing in words the simple & practical things that contribute to living a healthy, balanced, and meaningful life. It makes clear all of the things that need to happen on a daily basis to stay well. It helps us to recognise our triggers and warning signs; and to develop tools that actually work when dealing with challenges. It is also a plan of what needs to happen building up to a crisis and post crisis. This session will explore the elements that make a useful recovery plan and will provide a springboard for you to begin your own recovery plan.

The term randomised indicates that you will be selected into either the metformin or placebo group completely by chance. A placebo is a medication with no active ingredients. It looks like the real thing but is not. This clinical trial will randomise participants in a 1:1 design, which means there is an equal chance of being in either the metformin or the placebo group. Study details: • 24-week double blind clinical trial • Physical health measures and assessment of adverse drug reactions will be conducted weekly for the first 4 weeks whilst titration of trial medication occurs and then monthly for duration of trial • Battery of validated clinical measures, physical health measures (blood pressure and BMI will be conducted at baseline, weeks, 4 ,8,12 ,16,20 and 24) • Mandatory blood collection x3 (baseline, week 12 and 24) • All assessments completed by the Cadence Team, no on-going burden to clinicians • Adjunct treatment; no restrictions / impact on current treatment regime • Metformin / Placebo trial medication provided at no cost • Reimbursement; $140 in Coles / Myer gift-cards ($20 at baseline, weeks 4,8,12,16,20 and week 24) Inclusion Criteria • Aged 18 - 64 years (inclusive) • Effective use of contraception (females only) • Diagnosis of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder, based on the Diagnostic Interview for Psychosis (DIP) • Fasting Blood Glucose level ≤6.0 mmols • About to start oral clozapine or have received clozapine for a period of no more than 2 weeks • BMI ≥18 and ≤40 • Participant must have the capacity to consent and be able to follow the study instructions and procedures • Must be current clients of local public mental health services

PM+ is a brief and free low-intensity psychological intervention. It’s called ‘problem management’ because the program uses problem solving counselling or problem- solving therapy and includes other behavioural strategies too. The program aims to address both psychological problems such as stress, fear, feelings of helplessness, loneliness, and where possible, practical problems such as financial stress, family conflict, visa concerns, and health issues. The program uses cultural support workers (individuals who may come from the same country/ethnic group as the participant) who are also trained in the WHO PM+ program. Participants can pick up to three concerns and, with the support and guidance of the trained peer support worker, learn and identify strategies to solve and manage the issues. This will equip the participant with new tools and techniques to use if ever a new problem was to arise in the future after PM+ involvement, such as learning deep breathing for relaxation.
