Healthy Transitions is a program designed to assist youth and young adults ages 16 to 25 in Pawtucket and Central Falls who are experiencing first episode psychosis (FEP).
Symptoms of First Episode Psychosis (FEP)
Are you or a loved one suddenly experiencing the following symptoms?
- Disorganized thinking and speech
- Increased confusion
- Withdrawal or social isolation
- Decrease in functioning
If so, you or your loved one may be suffering from first episode psychosis (FEP). It can be difficult to let your loved ones know what is going on and ask for help.
Healthy Transitions provides services such as:
- Medication management
- Mental health counseling
- Education and employment support
- Substance use treatment
- Referrals to other resources and programs like vocational rehabilitation and community support
- Coordination of care
A Team You Can Count On
We employ coordinated specialty care, a team-based, wraparound approach that seeks to ease the transition to adulthood for those experiencing early psychosis. Our specialists can help you manage your symptoms in a way that works with your lifestyle.
Our team members include:
- Team leader/manager
- Case manager
- Employment and education specialist
- Substance use counselor
Tailored to your specific goals, our services are designed to help you gain independence in self-managing your illness.
