Helping People Live Healthy Lives
New Journeys

Psychosis is treatable! Research indicates with early intervention the long term trajectory of illness such as schizophrenia can be significantly altered in a positive way with effective treatments as used in New Journeys!

New Journeys seeks to identify people who have experienced their first psychotic episode as early as possible and direct them to services that specifically address their own individual needs. New Journeys seeks to establish a trusting relationship with individuals and their families by helping to process the trauma of first episode psychosis and identify each individuals' own path to recovery.



The goal of New Journeys is to help people experiencing first episode psychosis get back on track with their life and achieve optimal role functioning at home, school, work, as well as with social and leisure adjustment.
