The Early Intervention in Psychosis Service provides specialist treatment and care for people between 14-35 years who have signs of psychosis.
We will make an appointment for you to meet us in order to assess your symptoms and needs.
Following this the team will create a plan of care with you and your family in order to decide on the best possible treatment. We are also able to provide information on psychosis as well as support in taking up employment, education and volunteering opportunities in your local area.
We will be here to offer ongoing treatment and care to support your recovery for up to three years. We also organise carers groups to provide information and support for carers of individuals with psychosis.
