Prevention of Psychosis

Early Intervention Can Make A Huge Difference

There is significant evidence to suggest that early treatment has significant benefits. With early detection it is possible to delay or even prevent the onset of chronic psychosis.

It is also shown that early intervention can reduce hospitalization and increase engagement with community services and support resources.

The REACH Team can assist youth and their families to strengthen coping skills, reduce stress and improve all areas of daily life.
