Our regional Early Intervention in Psychosis teams offer support to anyone experiencing symptoms of psychosis.
Following an initial assessment, the teams provide rapid, intensive support for up to three years. We also work alongside Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) for young people aged 14 to 18 years in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
Find out more about our CAMHS services here.
For young people in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire, this service is provided by Oxford Health.
The teams vary across AWP in the ages of young people they are able to help. Please contact your local Early Intervention in Psychosis team for more information.
If you, or the person you care for, are referred to our services, the Early Intervention in Psychosis teams aim to:
help you and your family understand what is happening.
reduce distress caused by unusual experiences.
provide evidence-based treatments and therapies.
focus on your personal recovery and quick return to everyday roles with work, family and social relationships.
Referrals to our Early Intervention teams are made by GPs and other healthcare professionals.
