SCEIS supports recovery through early assessment and the development of a comprehensive treatment plan that is client- and family-centred and recovery-focused, with the goal of improving functioning. We also provide education and support to family members of those receiving SCEIS services.
The program integrates the following former clinics and services: First Episode Psychosis Clinic (FEPC), Home Intervention Service (HIP), Mood and Anxiety Early Intervention Clinic (EIC), First Assessment Clinical Team (FACT) Peel, and Learning Employment Advocacy Recreation Network (LEARN).
The program’s goal is to improve outcomes for young people with psychosis through early identification, intervention and treatment tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual, based on emerging best practices in clinical care and research.
Assessment and Comprehensive Coordinated Treatment Plan
Psychosis can cause acute distress and confusion in a young person, as well as for their family and friends. For many reasons, there can be a long delay before a young person manages to access appropriate treatment. This delay can significantly impact the development of skills necessary for achieving independent living, having adult relationships and developing careers. Early intervention with the focus on specialized interventions and recovery improves recovery outcomes and reduces the negative effects of this condition.
The Slaight Centre outpatient service is a youth-friendly program that provides an easily accessible, stigma-free model of care to young people that meets their specific developmental needs.
For ongoing care after initial assessment, we may suggest services closer to home, since early intervention services in Ontario are offered in geographic catchments.
