Early Psychosis Service (mental health)

The Early Psychosis Service provides frequent community-based care to young people between 18 and 24 years old. We see people living in The Prince Charles Hospital and Royal Brisbane and Woman’s Hospital catchment area who are having a first experience of psychosis or where there is a high risk that they will develop psychosis.

Our services

We can help you to understand your illness and find ways to reduce or cope with illness symptoms. Our aim is to help you restabilise your mental health and help you return to an active and healthy life as soon as you can.

We can connect you with various support agencies such as employment, relationship matters and alcohol and drug services. Families and carers are offered an early psychosis group education program and guidance to community family programs.

Your treating team is made up of a range of mental health clinicians, including a doctor. It may also include a psychologist, nurse, social worker or occupational therapist.
