My Reality - Understanding Psychosis


Psychosis affects approximately three in every 100 people. The sooner someone seeks treatment, the better the outcome.

The Early Psychosis Intervention service provides assessment and treatment for those experiencing a first episode of psychosis.

First episode psychosis is the first time someone experiences psychotic symptoms such as:

  • False beliefs
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Disorganized thoughts / speech

This service also provides a free education group to those who are supporting a family member with psychosis.

Eligibility criteria

  • Age 14 to 35 years of age
  • Suspect they're experiencing symptoms of psychosis or have been diagnosed with first episode of psychosis
  • Less than six months of antipsychotic medications or no prior use of antipsychotics
