We're excited to announce that as of 1 July 2020, Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui will be called Te Pou. We have a fresh new look and a new logo that you will begin to see more often. Our website will be rebuilt over the coming months, to be more focused on ease of access to our resources and knowledge. Read more here.
Early intervention in psychosis services are set up to provide intensive support, as early as possible, for people who may be experiencing psychosis for the first time. Early intervention clinicians aim to provide recovery centred, collaborative support which may range from talking therapy, group work, medication, psychoeducation and family work. The research suggests that people who receive this type of specialist service recover faster, experience more complete recovery, and have lower rates of relapse and hospital admissions.
For more information, please contact your local Early Intervention in Psychosis team. Contact details can be found in the New Zealand Directory.
