Description

This service identifies young people aged 15-25 years who are considered to be at risk of developing a psychotic illness. Clinical, psychosocial and cultural interventions are provided to reduce the impact of early warning signs and to prevent the development of psychosis.

Awhi Mai Awhi Atu "At risk mental state" - PRODROME is a clinical service for youth aged 15 - 25 years who are at risk of developing a psychotic disorder.

Youth "at risk" tend to:

  • have a parent or brother/ sister who has a psychotic disorder and find it difficult to cope with life.
  • have experienced changes in the way they see or hear things (e.g. hear mumbling voices) or have odd thoughts (e.g. think they are being spied on or that they are receiving messages).
  • some may also have experienced brief encounters of psychotic symptoms.

Our team offers support including:

  • conducting clinical assessments
  • providing information
  • advocacy support
  • therapy
  • teaching coping skills and life skills.

Call us on (09) 263 8040 or view the Awhi Mai Awhi Atu, "At risk mental state" Kaupapa Maori PRODROME Service section of our website.
