First Episode Psychosis programs improve the quality of life for youth and young adults. These programs are expanding around the country because of the difference they make in young lives. Congress has recognized the value and importance of these programs by providing enhanced funding through the Mental Health Block Grant. First Episode Psychosis programs provide a coordinated array of specialty care for youth and young adults experiencing early psychosis that helps them to reach recovery and their life goals.
