Whatever you’re looking for – from crisis lines to specialized support in your community, we’ve got you covered.

WHAT IS EARLY TREATMENT FOR PSYCHOSIS?

Getting help in the first stages of psychosis offers the best chance for full recovery. It is also a time when risks to health and well-being are highest. The goal of getting into specialized support early is to set off on a smoother path to wellness, allowing you to get back to the life you want to live sooner.

How Early Treatment Leads To Recovery

Early psychosis treatment programs offer individualized support focused on helping people reach personal goals such as staying in school or work and maintaining relationships.

Early intervention treatment typically includes:

TREATMENT TRACKER

All early psychosis treatment programs are aimed at recovery, but some have specific focuses. Some offer treatment before a full episode occurs; these are called “Clinical High Risk” programs. Other programs focus on helping young people get back on track after a first episode, called “First Episode Psychosis” or “Coordinated Specialty Care.” And, some programs offer support across the spectrum.

Check the map for a program near you, or download a list of programs. Note: For states with extensive listings such as NY and OR, please see the list of programs for a link to a full statewide directory. To add or update program information, please fill out our Early Psychosis Provider Form.

If there is not a program near you, we recommend contacting the nearest program for provider recommendations in your local area. Your nearest university-based mental health clinic, research lab, or state mental health agency may also be helpful in recommending local providers.
