Early Intervention Service (Tower Hamlets)
Tower Hamlets Early Intervention Service (THEIS) is an early intervention in psychosis service for young adults aged 18-35 years old, from a range of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, experiencing first onset of psychosis. Since December 2016, we have started assessing and working with people aged 35+ who have a first episode psychosis, using a Hub and Spoke model in Tower Hamlets.
THEIS is a multi-disciplinary team who provide a range of psychosocial interventions working within the care programme approach framework in collaboration with service users, family’s & carers and other relevant agencies. The interventions are offered in individual, group and family contexts, and commonly require an assertive outreach approach.
Early intervention for psychosis services aim to reduce the prevalence and impact of Schizophrenia by reducing the duration of untreated psychosis and engaging service users in training and work as well as offering support and psychological interventions.
The team strive to empower and support people in their own self-development by aiming to inspire hope, breaking down stigma around mental health and helping the person to understand their mental health difficulties linked in with their own life stories.
