headspace Youth Early Psychosis Program officially open!
hYEPP (headspace Youth Early Psychosis Program) Meadowbrook is a continuing care team of multidisciplinary professionals who provide recovery orientated, early intervention services to young people aged 12-25 who are experiencing a First Episode of Psychosis or at Ultra-High risk of experiencing Psychosis. Our service is based on EPPIC (Early Psychosis Prevention and Intervention Centre) from Orygen Youth Health in Victoria and as such, our practice and service provision are based on assertive outreach, family work, functional recovery and partnerships with other community organisations to enhance care.
hYEPP Meadowbrook is a 'Spoke' of the headspace Southport hYEPP 'Hub' and we work closely with the Hub to ensure continuity of service. The Hub provides extended hours of service to clients accessing hYEPP Meadowbrook as well as providing specialist services such as functional recovery groups and family therapy. Currently we're in 'scaling up' mode with the full service planning to be rolled out mid-2015. Referrals can be made through contacting the centre via phone or email.
