Mental Health difficulties affect many people at some time during their lives, whether this is feeling stressed, anxious or low in mood. Sometimes people have experiences they find difficult to explain. This could be hearing voices, tasting, smelling or seeing things that other people cannot. At other times people have unusual thoughts— such as feeling that others can read their minds, that they are being controlled or that they have special powers. These experiences are often called ‘psychosis’.
The P.I.E.R. team has been set up to work especially with people who have experienced a first episode of psychosis.
Who can we support?
The aim of our service is to help people (aged 14 to 64 years) who have experienced a first episode of psychosis to recover, manage any ongoing difficulties and to minimise the chance of potential relapse.
We also offer support to families.
