Program Description

This service consists of an interdisciplinary team to assess and provide a broad range of clinical and support services to individuals (and families) experiencing a first/early episode of psychosis. This program is a multi-disciplinary intensive assessment and treatment program for adolescents and young adults (ages 14-34) who have experienced their first episode of psychosis during the previous year. This is an early intervention program with a focus on early recognition and comprehensive services during the early onset of the disease in order to avoid a prolonged course of illness and reintegration back into social, emotional, activity and vocational functioning.
