Through our Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses (PEPP), we provide early intervention services for individuals aged 14-35 living in St. Thomas or Elgin County who display signs of psychosis, such as hallucinations, delusions, or disorganized thought, and who have either had no treatment or have been treated for less than one month.
Young people (men aged 14-25 and women aged 14-35) are at particularly high risk of developing psychosis, and early recognition and assessment are key factors in recovery and management of symptoms. The program is committed to working in partnership with the individual’s family who often play a vital role in outcomes.
Goals & Obejctives
The goal of the PEPP program is to offer a rapid engagement to support and treatment through a
multidisciplinary team in the client’s community. Focus on support, treatment and stabilization to improve overall well-being and to prevent on-going symptoms of psychosis is at the center of the client’s unique intervention plan.
