What is the EPIC Program?

This program is for youth and young adults who have experienced or continue to experience their first episode of psychosis. The goal of the program is to quickly stabilize and reduce symptoms through early intervention. This includes helping people go back to or stay in school, secure and maintain employment, live independently and form meaningful relationships. The program offers care and support services for up to three years, based on needs and preferences. We provide access to therapeutic and supportive services throughout the treatment time.
