What's the deal with...
Early Intervention in Psychosis Central Norfolk

 What help do you offer?

At the Early Intervention team we support people from 14 to 35 if you are experiencing symptoms of your first episode of psychosis. Our support is intended to help you feel better and to reduce the impact of the symptoms. We aim to help you and your family understand more about the symptoms of psychosis and what treatments are available.​

 How do I get help from your service?

Please call us yourself or get someone in your family to request support. We also accept referrals from other professionals, such as your GP.​

 What hours is your service available?



If support is needed outside the working hours of the Early Intervention team, call your GP or you can contact the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment (CRHT) team on 0300 790 0371.

 What can I expect from you?

We aim to develop a good relationship with you so we can understand your experiences and how they impact your life. We aim to meet you wherever you feel comfortable and work with you to reduce any distress the symptoms are causing you. We talk about the impact of stress and develop positive coping strategies with you to help reduce future episodes of psychosis.​

 What is the main address of your service?

80 St Stephens Road
NR1 3RE ​

 How can I contact you?

You can call us on 0330 058 1840 (Fax 01603 974771) ​

 What conditions do you treat?

We support people with psychosis. Symptoms include:

Hearing voices or seeing things others do not see
Feeling paranoid or mistrustful of others
Believing you can read other people's thoughts
Feeling confused, irritable or depressed
Not thinking clearly
Feeling worried that bad things may happen to you or other people
Believing you have special powers or are famous in some way.

There may be other symptoms of psychosis too.

 What support do you offer carers including friends and family?

We are very happy to meet with your friends and family to discuss any concerns or queries they may have to support you. Where people have taken on a full time carer's role, or if they are struggling to balance their caring duties with day to day life, we refer them for a carer assessment. ​
