San Francisco | 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
