Dr. Sarah Kopelovich, a psychologist at the University of Washington School of Medicine, was the lead author of a statement by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration calling cognitive behavioral therapy the standard of care for psychosis. 

Currently just 1% of people who need this therapy get it, she said. Psychosis is the defining criteria for people diagnosed with schizophrenia.
