What do we do?
- We provide information for young people and their families about their condition, coping strategies and medication.
- Maximise control over their experiences and minimise disruption to their lives.
- Provide psychological interventions on an individual and group basis.
- Maintain and develop community connections.
- Prevent or reduce the development of other problems; such as depression, anxiety and lack of motivation.
- Raise community awareness about psychosis and tackle the stigma.
- Sustain engagement for the young person.
Who is the service for?
The service is for young people aged 14 to 25 years, who may be experiencing early symptoms of psychosis. We would like to meet you if, in the last two years, you have started to experience unusual thoughts and feelings which have prevented you from being able to do the things you once considered ‘normal’ and ‘enjoyable’.
Who can refer you?
