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.
We accept referrals from medical professionals, such as your GP or local Access & Assessment service.
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.
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.
