Our Ascent Program provides support for youth and young adults, aged 15-29, experiencing troubling thoughts or behaviors attributed to first episode psychosis (FEP), which can show anytime between youth and early adulthood. These symptoms blur reality and create disruptions in daily life. People going through first episode psychosis may not understand what is happening to them. This can be highly disturbing and unfamiliar creating fear, confusion and distress.
If left untreated, these thoughts, feelings, or behaviors can become worse over time. Getting early treatment can be life-changing and help in lessoning the risk of relapse, reducing school and work disruptions, decreasing the need for hospitalization, reducing family disruption and stress, lessoning the risk of suicide, and creating a better prognosis for the long term.
Our Ascent Program is designed to treat the individual rather than just the symptoms. Ascent uses a series of specialized services to help individuals develop independence and maintain stability. We believe every person deserves a chance at recovery through quality care and support.
