The Greenwich early intervention team (EIT) works with people aged 14 - 35 who have presented with a first episode of psychosis.
The team aims to get involved as early as possible during the critical period of the illness to provide support to service users and their families.
Their work includes providing education about psychosis, enhancing the development of effective coping strategies, providing support and advice on medication, support to get back to work or education, individual and group - based psychosocial interventions from a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) perspective, relapse prevention and support with drug and alcohol issues.
