This website was created with the intent of providing a collective resource about Early Psychosis Intervention (EPI) for the province of British Columbia (BC).
The decision to create this website came from the EPI Advanced Practice Project (EPI APP). The EPI APP is an ongoing collaboration amongst BC health authorities, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Children and Family Development, and other service providers in order to facilitate best practices in EPI throughout the province.
Much of the material on this website comes from two previously existing BC-based websites concerning early psychosis – psychosissucks.ca (Fraser Health) and hopevancouver.com (Vancouver Coastal Health). The process of developing this website and developing new content was undertaken by a committee that consisted of members of the EPI APP, other service providers and EPI clients and families.
The partners involved in this project have been: Fraser Health, Vancouver Coastal Health, Northern Health, and Island Health.
