Reality Rules! Yukon Early Psychosis Intervention


Early intervention + Caring Support = Optimal Recovery

The earlier the intervention, the greater the chance of a successful recovery! Those people who receive treatment following the onset of psychosis have a better chance for recovery than those who wait. Untreated psychosis can disrupt a person's ability to develop their own identity, form lasting relationships, establish careers and make future plans. Relationships with family and friends, at school and at work, may be affected by psychosis. As well, other problems such as substance abuse, unemployment, and depression may occur.

If psychosis is detected and treated early, many problems can be prevented. Early intervention is key to an optimal recovery.
