First Episode Clinic Hours: Monday thru Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm
Led by Director, Dr. Suzanne Jasberg the first episode psychosis clinic focuses on the early assessment and treatment of people experiencing their first episode of psychosis. Psychotic symptoms can be caused by multiple different etiologies and are treatable. Symptoms of psychosis can include hallucinations, delusional thinking, disorganized thinking or speech, cognitive difficulty, lack of motivation, isolation and difficulty in school or work. If yourself or a loved one may be experiencing symptoms of psychosis, an evaluation for possible treatment in the clinic is available.

First Episode Psychosis Intensive Outpatient Program, Elevate

Elevate is an intensive outpatient program for adults experiencing their first episode of psychosis. The Elevate program utilizes key concepts from the NAVIGATE program, the first evidence based treatment manual for recovery after an initial episode of psychosis. The Elevate program focuses on reduction in symptoms, reduction in substance use, healthy lifestyle choices, and stress management. Clients utilize these skills to work towards individual goals, often returning to work or school. We strive to develop long term, and meaningful relationships with our clients, to help support each individual on their path.
