Early intervention in psychosis

We provide community-based support to people aged up to 65 years old who are experiencing their first episode of psychosis.

Psychosis is a condition which affect's a person's mind. It changes the way they think, feel and behave. Someone who experiences psychosis may be unable to tell the difference between reality and their imagination. Psychosis can happen to anyone and like any other illness it can be treated. Most people will make a full recovery.

Early intervention means getting help for problems when they start, before they develop into a more serious illness. The earlier someone gets help, the more quickly support can be put in place to help their recovery.

We have six teams: two in East Sussex, one in Brighton & Hove and three in West Sussex.
