ENGAGE is a First Episode Psychosis team. We 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. It is the goal of our program to decrease the duration of untreated psychosis for these individuals, as the research shows that with early intervention by a specialized team such as ENGAGE, it is possible to prevent the young person from ever having a second psychotic episode.
ENGAGE currently has two locations serving youth 15-25 in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties who have been experiencing psychosis for one year or less.
Parts of this program may be covered by your insurance. The program is further supported by a Mental Health Block Grant provided through the State of Pennsylvania (for Pennsylvania residents only).
