Early Psychosis Intervention Program

Who are we?

The Heads Up! Program is an early psychosis intervention program meant to help those who are experiencing a first episode of psychosis. We work as a team to assess, treat and educate people with psychosis as soon as possible. We know that if we can catch psychosis early, then people have the best chance of a successful recovery.

Who is eligible for our service?

The interdisciplinary team provides services to persons 14 to 35 years of age who are experiencing their first episode of psychosis or have not received treatment for psychosis.

Mission, Vision, Values

Mission
We are a team dedicated to the early detection and treatment of psychosis in persons aged 14-35. We support our clients with their return to wellness by enabling them to define and reach their goals. We deliver our services in Hastings, Prince Edward, Lennox and Addington, Frontenac (Kingston), Lanark and Leeds and Grenville counties.

Vision
All individuals experiencing psychosis receive services tailored to their needs in their own community to support their journey towards wellness.
 
Values:   
Hope - We believe that individuals can recover from psychosis with early detection and appropriate treatment.

Caring - We believe that educated and supportive families improve the probability of recovery.

Fighting Stigma - We believe that public education about mental illness helps to break down stigma which can be a barrier to seeking help early.

Alliances - We are devoted to working with our community partners to support our clients on their journey towards recovery.
