First Episode Psychosis (FEP)

Have you had things happen to you that are difficult to explain?  Do everyday events not make sense to you anymore?  Do you sometimes hear things without being able to identify where they’re coming from?  Or see things that look out of place?  Do you sometimes have problems concentrating or being able to follow conversations?  Has anyone else noticed changes in your everyday behavior? We all experience life in different ways, based on where we live, who we associate with and our normal activities.  Those experiences give us our perception of how the world operates and explains why things happen the way they do.  For 3 out of 100 people, however, stress and genetics can cause us to change our perceptions of the world and pull us into a confusing and scary place. 


These changes are subtle at first and make it difficult to understand what’s really happening.  As a result, they are often seen as a normal life event but, if left untreated, can have a significant impact on our lives – including a reduction in motivation, performance, impaired social relationships, increased fear and isolation.  They can make people feel alone in the world and that they have no place to turn to for help.  They can make people feel that there is something wrong with them because others don’t have the same experiences.  They can lead to desperate attempts to control these changes – including drug and alcohol use.  If you answered yes to any of the questions above please reach out for help.  At Community Partners we can help identify possible causes, let you know treatment options and provide support to you and your family.
