Early Intervention East

 

The East Cheshire Early Intervention in Psychosis Team is based in Congleton.

We cover a large area encompassing the entire East, South, Central and Vale Royal area of Cheshire.

The team consists of a consultant psychiatrist, team manager, care co-ordinators (community psychiatric nurses), social worker, support workers, a CBT therapist, an exercise referral specialist and an employment support worker.

We offer up to a 5 year service to young people aged 14 up to about 35 who have experienced a first episode of a psychotic illness.

Treatment is led by the evidence based NICE Guidelines for Psychosis.

The team has a focus on optimism and hope of recovery, family support, holistic care and a reduction in stigma associated with mental illness.

We also place emphasis on being able to demonstrate the quality and effectiveness of the service through evidence based outcome measures.

 We look forward to hearing from you!
