EASA

EASA – Early Assessment and Support Alliance

EASA is an early intervention program serving young people ages 12 to 25 who have had a first episode of psychosis within the last 12 months or who are experiencing early at-risk symptoms for psychosis, and their families. The goal of EASA is to identify individuals with a new psychosis as soon as possible in order to minimize the negative impact on their lives.

Psychosis is more common than you think. Psychosis can happen to anyone. It affects approximately 3 out of every 100 young people and recovery is absolutely possible.

What is psychosis?
The word psychosis refers to a state in which a person experiences some or all of the following: hallucinations (seeing and hearing things others don’t); delusions (bizarre, out-of-character, fixed beliefs); and disturbances to speech, emotional expression, and movement. Onset of these symptoms usually occurs gradually.
