About our Services

Who we serve

PREP assists youth and young adults aged 16-24 in Alameda County who have experienced a recent-onset of psychosis by offering direct and accessible clinical services.

Our eligibility Criteria:

  • Between the ages of 16 and 24
  • Fit criteria for schizophrenia, schizophreniform, or schizoaffective disorder
  • Onset of psychosis within the last two years
  • Alameda County Resident

How We are Different

The current treatment of people living with psychosis often assumes a relentless decline in function.  At PREP, we believe our comprehensive approach will enable people with early psychosis to resume productive and rewarding lives.  Our staff members also understand the cultural diversity of Alameda County and are sensitive to the backgrounds of each individual.

Our Services

Our clinicians utilize this current therapeutic method for assisting clients in overcoming psychosis.

Judicious Medication Management

We offer psycho-educational groups bringing together clients and their families (or the support network defined by each client) to explore new strategies for problem solving and ways of coping.

Peer and Family Mutual Support Groups

We provide a safe and respectful environment for participants to gain support and insight from others involved in the program
