Early Interventions for First Episode Psychosis

Kentucky currently has eight FEP teams across the state. The focus of this learning series will be to enhance the services these FEP teams provide, as well as to build awareness and education in areas of the state without current FEP teams. Early identification, through awareness and effective screening, with subsequent early and effective service delivery, can dramatically affect negative trajectories traditionally associated with early psychosis and serious mental illness. For that to happen, clinical providers and youth-serving agencies must be trained to recognize early issues related to mental health and to provide developmentally appropriate clinical care. The learning series will focus on supporting them to do just that.

Mental Illnesses are brain-based conditions that affect thinking, emotions, and behaviors. Since we all have brains – having some kind of mental health problem during your life is really common. No matter what kind of mental health problem someone is facing, it is always possible to get better. If you think you’re experiencing a mental illness, try to find any kind of support earlier than later. Like other illness, treating mental illnesses early can help you get better faster.
