Early Intervention

The Early Intervention in Psychosis Team (EIT) works with people who have experienced a first episode of psychosis. It is a multidisciplinary team supporting young people experiencing a first episode of psychosis. The team consists of staff from a variety of disciplines, including nursing, social work, occupational therapy, and psychology.

One of the key aims of the team is to reduce the duration of untreated psychosis. This is associated with worse outcomes in terms of total symptoms, overall functioning, positive symptoms, and quality of life. The duration of untreated psychosis is also likely to increase the risk of serious disruption to important aspects of the person’s life.

The team works with people living in Bolton, Salford, Trafford and the City of Manchester in a non-stigmatising way.

We are able to provide a range of support, including:

  • Full care-coordination
  • Evidence based group and individual psychological interventions (including cognitive behavioural therapy and Family Interventions)
  • Support with medication management
  • Support with accessing employment, education and vocational activities
  • An assertive approach to engagement
  • Support for families and carers
