Early Intervention for Psychosis: Hope FIRST

We are proud to announce an exciting new service at Trilogy, Hope FIRST, a first episode psychosis program.  Hope FIRST is a comprehensive, team-based treatment program aimed at improving the mental health and quality of life for individuals who have recently experienced a first episode of psychosis. Hope FIRST is in partnership with the IDHS Division of Mental Health and associating FIRST.IL programs, Northern Illinois University and the Best Practices in Schizophrenia Treatment (BeST) Center at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED).  

Hope FIRST focuses on early intervention for individuals 18-40 years-old who have experienced symptoms of psychosis within the past 18 months. The Hope FIRST program offers psychiatry, individual therapy, case management, family psychoeducation and supportive employment services to individuals with an emphasis on shared decision making.

Treatment goals aim to reduce the symptoms of the psychotic illnesses, improve individual and family functioning, reduce the chance of relapse, promote recovery, improve the long-term course of the illness and decrease the overall costs of treatment.

People with schizophrenia often wait months to years before seeking help. Early intervention and treatment can help.

Mental Health First Aid Training

Trilogy Mental Health First AidMental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course designed to give members of the public key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.

The evidence behind Mental Health First Aid demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy — helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Specifically, studies found that those who trained in Mental Health First Aid have greater confidence in providing help to others, greater likelihood of advising people to seek professional help, improved concordance with health professionals about treatments, and decreased stigmatizing attitudes.
