Early Intervention in Psychosis Service celebrates 20 years

October 13, 2015

During Mental Health Week Bentley Health Service’s Early Intervention in Psychosis Service (EIPS) hosted a free seminar and networking event to mark 20 years of service to the community.

In collaboration with mental health programs Youth Axis and Act Belong Commit, 15 external organisations attended to learn about psychosis and early intervention.

Senior Clinical Psychologist and EIPS Coordinator Tracey Harrison said the seminar tied in perfectly with Mental Health Week.
 
“The seminar was an opportunity to give external providers a hospital-based perspective on the current status of youth mental health services in WA, during a time where mental health issues are being widely discussed,” Tracey said.

The event was well attended and provided an opportunity for services across the sector to meet, and hear about both developing and well established services.
