Services for First Episode of Psychosis

1st Step is an assessment and treatment program for people who are experiencing a first episode of psychosis — an experience where you might have trouble telling the difference between what is real and what isn’t.

The key to a successful recovery from psychosis is getting help fast. Psychosis has an impact on your life at home, school and work. Our team of professionals can help. To better understand your needs, we will do a comprehensive assessment that will include a medical screening, a medical history and psychiatric interviews. Together with you, we can then develop a treatment plan. Treatment may include counselling, medication, group activities, family education and finding support for your day-to-day living. Our goal is to support you and your family in finding balance in your life and recovery from psychosis.
