Catholic Charities has launched a program in Chelan and Douglas Counties which began in Washington State in 2015 as a treatment model for youth and young adults experiencing first-episode psychosis. New Journeys First Episode Psychosis (FEP) focuses on early intervention and treatment. A team of coordinated mental health specialists works collaboratively with clients, their families, doctors, teachers, employers, and other significant people in each client’s life. They help clients identify their personal goals and needs for recovery. The goal is for individuals experiencing their first episode of psychosis to return to meaningful activity in their job, school, home, or other areas of life.
