Early Psychosis Support
When a young person experiences a psychotic episode for the first time it can be a traumatic experience for the whole family.
We recognise that families can feel overwhelmed and need support. MIFNQ in partnership with Townsville Institute of Mental Health Services has developed a six-week family education and support program to help families gain information, knowledge and understanding of psychosis and its impact on all family members.
- Treatment options
- The role of stress
- Managing difficult behaviour
- Maintaining hope and recovery
We run the program with staff from local mental health services throughout the year depending on demand.
Who will benefit from the Early Psychosis Support program?
Family and friends of young people between the ages of 16 and 25 experiencing the first or second episode of psychosis.
