Alameda | Felton Early Psychosis Programs

Who we are:

The Felton (re)MIND® early psychosis program delivers comprehensive treatment grounded in wellness, recovery and resilience to people experiencing early signs and symptoms of a psychotic disorder, as well as providing families the tools to support their loved ones in their recovery process. Our mission is to transform the treatment and perception of psychosis – and by extension the lives of young people and their families – by intervening early with evidence-based, culturally responsive and rigorous diagnostic assessment and treatment, so that within five years of engaging in services most cases of psychosis are treated to remission.

Our Goals
  • Provide outreach and services to identify and treat early signs and symptoms of psychosis
  • Prevent psychotic disorders  from becoming severe and disabling
  • Assist clients to mitigate and cope with symptoms in a way that allows them to achieve their personal life goals
  • Reduce rates of suicide, school failure and dropout, emergency hospitalization, unemployment, and incarceration
  • Reduce the stigma associated with psychosis
  • Ensure that underserved populations have timely access to culturally responsive evidence-based treatment
Who We Serve
  • (re)MIND® is a coordinated specialty care model for early detection and treatment of psychosis.  Participants have begun experiencing signs and symptoms of psychosis within the past two years.

    To be eligible for (re)MIND®, participants must:

    • Be an Alameda County resident
    • Have MediCal Insurance
    • Have experienced full psychosis for the first time in the past 2 years
    • Be 15-25 years old

    BEAM serves individuals with onset of Bipolar spectrum disorder or mood disorder with psychotic features in the past two years. The program is committed to transforming the treatment and perception of recent onset Bipolar spectrum disorder or other mood disorders, by intervening early with evidence-based, culturally competent assessment, diagnosis and interventions so that the teen or young adult and their family learn skills to manage the episodic nature of mood disorders.

    • Be an Alameda County resident
    • Have MediCal Insurance
    • Have experienced Bipolar I or mood disorder with psychotic features for the first time in the past 2 years
