Increasing Access to Early Psychosis Care

Finding help

Connecting to a specialized early psychosis program can help individuals find their path to recovery. While there are a growing number of programs in Pennsylvania, not all residents live near an existing First Episode Psychosis (FEP) Center. Visit our Find a Center page to see if there is an FEP program near you.

If there are no FEP Centers in your area, you may find other mental health treatment programs by accessing the SAMHSA National Serious Early Mental Illness Locator tool or the PEPPNET Early Psychosis National Locator tool.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis or is considering suicide, help is available. Reach out to the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline by calling or texting 988 or contact Crisis Text Line by texting PA to 741741.

HeadsUp does not offer clinical services.

Why isn’t there an Early Psychosis Center near me?

There are many reasons why your community may not have an FEP center, including the number of people who live in your county and the types of mental health programs that may already exist. Organizations may not be aware of current opportunities offered by Community Mental Health Services Block Grant funds, or may not be aware of how helpful an FEP center would be for their community.

HeadsUp connects with people and organizations across Pennsylvania to increase awareness of the Community Mental Health Services Block Grant funds, and share information about positive outcomes for individuals and communities who engaged with FEP care. Your feedback will help HeadsUp know where FEP centers are most needed, so we can connect with the right people in the right communities.

Using the Referral and Outreach Resource Tool

When you first open the Tool, the default Pennsylvania map presented will show all counties and resource types. Each dot on the map represents a unique resource and hovering over a dot will display contact details for that specific resource.  Each color represents a different resource type.

Resource types include:

  • Customize your map view by selecting from the drop-down menus and filter your search by county or resource type. Note: If there are not yet resources in the chosen area, none will appear.
  • Hovering over the map itself will reveal access to map controls. You can change your view using the plus and minus icons to zoom your view in and out.
  • The home icon displays all resources in PA. Click this icon to return to the original map view.
  • To scroll the map in any direction hover over the triangle to enable the pan feature (indicated by the four arrowed icon).
  • To select resources within a certain radius, hover over the triangle to enable the radial (indicated by the dotted circle icon) and lasso (indicated by the dotted partial circle icon) features.
  • Use the magnifying glass icon to search for a specific address.
  • Navigate to the map footer to enter full-screen mode.
  • Access the refresh feature (indicated by the lined-left-arrow icon) in the map footer to return to the default map view.
  • The table underneath the map summarizes resources based on the filters you have selected. Use the bars on the bottom and right-hand sides of the table to scroll left or right, and up or down. (Note: If there are not yet resources in the chosen area, none will appear. If there are a limited number of resources in the chosen area, the scroll features will not appear.)
