Youth Support

When a young person has a psychotic episode for the first time it can be a traumatic experience for him or her as well as their loved ones. But the good news is that early intervention can make a big difference to future mental health. MIFWA’s Early Intervention Recovery Program (EIRP) targets young people at this crucial early stage.

What the EIRP offers

The EIRP is for people aged 18-35 years, who have been diagnosed with early episode psychosis. The six-month program aims to support them to re-establish or maintain social, employment and educational networks. Rehabilitation, independent living skills and recreation are all addressed.

Mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers, registered mental health nurses and GPs often refer participants. Self referrals are also considered.  

For more information on MIFWA’s Early Intervention Recovery Program give us a call Monday to Friday  9.00 am - 5.00 pm on (08) 9227 7751 or can email the EIRP team  teameirp@mifwa.org.au
