ENGAGE is a First Episode Psychosis team working with youth 15-30 in Allegheny County who have been experiencing psychosis in the last 18 months. ENGAGE works with individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar disorder, drug-induced psychosis, or those who have not yet been diagnosed. They work to provide personalized treatment and attention to maintain our client’s independence, enhance their quality of life in social and employment settings, and provide support for families.
The ENGAGE team consists of a psychiatrist, therapist, case manager, vocational specialist and a certified peer specialist working together to meet the needs of clients. It is our goal to decrease the duration of untreated psychosis and help an individual on the path towards recovery.
