The Early Psychosis Intervention Program helps youth who are in the early stages of developing psychosis, providing them with a full range of services to help them maintain their goals at work, at school, and within their social networks.
The Early Psychosis Intervention Program (MOD)
provides services to youth who are experiencing what may be the early signs and symptoms of psychosis. The program, which is recovery focused, works to promote early identification and treatment of psychosis. The program helps individuals achieve their goals at work, at school and within their social networks, thereby minimizing the impact of the psychosis. Services include assessment, the provision and coordination of treatment, education, case management, support and referrals to other services in the community by a multi-disciplinary team including a psychiatrist, nurses, social workers and occupational therapists. The program, which has a specialization in psychosis and mood disorders, also works closely with individuals’ families, providing them with education and supportive counselling.
