Early Psychosis Youth Services
The Early Psychosis Youth Services (EPYS) program through headspace Meadowbrook provides integrated early intervention treatment and intensive support to young people aged 12 to 25 years who are at ultrahigh risk of, or are experiencing, a first episode psychosis. This program aims to provide a single point of entry for comprehensive evidence based treatment and support, as well as ease of access to varying levels of intensity of care for young people and their families, replacing often fragmented treatment and support pathways.
