Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale early intervention in psychosis service

We provide care for people aged 14 to 65 years who experience a first episode of psychosis.

We work with you to look at the experiences you're having and how it affects you.

Together we can look at how to help you recover from these experiences, by giving you a range of information so you can decide what will help you.

This might include:

  • Practical help
  • Treatments, such as medication and counselling such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • An assessment to check if your mental state is at risk
  • Advice on money
  • Assistance with housing
  • Help with education and employment
  • Assistance in getting, and staying, well
  • Help with alcohol and substance issues
  • Advice on physical health and wellbeing
  • Family interventions and help and advice for relatives and friends.

We're based on the Birch Hill Hospital site, click here for a site map.

Our early intervention teams have created a series of videos with more information for carers, family and friends.

These will help to increase your understanding of psychosis and how our services can support your loved one.
