First Episode Psychosis

With early intervention and treatment, certain individuals may never experience another psychotic episode. However, for others, psychosis may manifest as a recurrent symptom of conditions like schizophrenia or other mental illnesses. Regardless, early treatment lays the foundation for recovery and leading a fulfilling life, ensuring opportunities for ongoing care and support.

Recognize the Indicators of Early Psychosis

  • Sensing, perceiving, or firmly holding beliefs that differ from others

  • Feeling suspicious or experiencing extreme discomfort in social interactions

  • Persistent and unusual thoughts or beliefs

  • Exhibiting intense and inappropriate emotions or a lack of emotions altogether

  • Withdrawing from family and friends, becoming socially isolated

  • Notably declining in self-care and neglecting personal hygiene

  • Struggling with clear thinking and concentration
     

If you or someone you know is displaying these warning signs, it is crucial to reach out to a healthcare professional or seek assistance from a first-episode psychosis program, if available in your community. Taking early action is vital in ensuring the well-being and trajectory of young lives.
