Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychosis

The Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychosis (PEPP-MUHC) offers community-based, tertiary care, treatment for people between 16-35 years of age, who are experiencing a first episode of psychosis. Our principal goal is to provide our patients and their families with quick and easy access to treatment; to reduce delay in initiating treatment and to promote early integration into their respective roles. The PEPP- MUHC accepts referrals from the community (consumers, families, health care professionals, schools), who are living in our catchment area. We follow patients for up to 2 years, and then refer them on to either first or second line services for further follow up and treatment.
