Heads Up! Logo

Welcome to Heads Up!

Heads Up! 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 detect psychosis early, then people have the best chance of a successful recovery.

Who we can help

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.
