IEPA Early Intervention in Mental Health

IEPA is an international network for those involved in the study and treatment of the early phases of mental health disorders encompassing a trans-diagnostic approach. With its origins in early intervention in psychosis, IEPA aims to enhance awareness of the early phases of mental health disorders more generally, their causes, prevention and the process of recovery. It aims to provide a network for international communication and collaboration between stakeholders.
Membership is currently free and open to all individuals with an interest in the area of early intervention in mental health. The Association has its origins in the paradigm shift in psychosis services that began two decades ago, and now extends the early intervention approach to all areas of mental health. IEPA welcomes members from all fields of endeavour, and encourages diversity in the countries of residence, professional backgrounds, and levels of expertise and interest of its members.
