Early Intervention in Psychosis ages 14-35 years

The Early Intervention Team offers support to people aged between 14 and 35 who may be starting to experience symptoms of psychosis for the first time.

The word “psychosis” is used to describe a condition where a person may have the following symptoms:

 

  • Hearing or seeing things that others do not.
  • Unusual thoughts or ideas that won’t go away, even though other people do not believe that they can be real.
  • Not thinking as clearly as usual, or having difficulty in organising thoughts, so that speech can seem confused.
  • Family or friends may notice changes in behaviour, such as wanting to be alone more and difficulty in carrying out usual tasks.

This condition is more common than people think, with around 2-3% of people experiencing an episode at some stage in their life.

Psychosis can be treated, and most people make a full recovery.

If you think that you, or a friend or family member, are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact us on
