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 EPI Advanced Practice Project (EPI APP) includes representatives from BC Health Authorities, Ministry of Health, consumer groups, client and family/caregivers and others. The purpose of this EPI APP is to facilitate best practices in EPI service delivery throughout the province.
Health Authority partners supporting this project include Fraser Health, Vancouver Coastal Health, Interior Health, Northern Health and Island Health.
Current projects of the EPI APP include the following:
- Public-facing website https://www.earlypsychosis.ca/
- The training website https://www.epitrainingbc.ca/ for trainees, practicing clinicians, managers and administrative staff
- Ongoing organization of continuing education for clinicians
- Implementation of the Provincial EPI Standards and Guidelines within EPI programs and services
