New Early Psychosis Prevention and Early Intervention Clinic in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at UC Irvine.

The Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior is creating a brighter future for young adults experiencing serious mental health problems. 

More than two decades of research have shown that early intervention, provided as soon as possible after the initial onset of symptoms, leads to the best clinical outcomes for young people experiencing serious mental health problems, such as symptoms of psychosis. Immediate treatment and effective care result in better outcomes in school, at work and in family and social relationships, and fewer negative outcomes associated with their symptoms.

Our new UC Irvine Department of Psychiatry Chair, Dr. Cameron Carter has been developing and providing early psychosis prevention and early intervention (PEI) care for over 20 years. Carter and his faculty colleagues, Dr. Adrian Preda (Adult Psychiatry) and Dr. Carolyn Cookson (Child and Adolescent Psychiatry), have launched the iEDAPT (UC Irvine Early Diagnosis and Preventive Treatment) clinic. Together, they are committed to building a unique, specialized interdisciplinary team to address the medical, psychological and functional recovery needs of young individuals. 

Philanthropic support is vital to the growth of the iEDAPT program. Currently in its soft opening phase, the program is taking new referrals who are between the ages of 12-35 years of age and have experienced the onset of psychosis symptoms within the previous two years. Your gift on Giving Day will help support programs like the iEDAPT program in its mission to provide comprehensive mental health recovery services to young people and their families. Please consider partnering with the UC Irvine Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior as we transform the future of care for young adults suffering from psychosis.
