PROGRAMS AND CLINICAL SERVICES
Washington's Coordinated Speciality Care Program for First-Episode Psychosis
The New Journeys model involves services for education and employment, individual resiliency therapy (IRT), family psychoeducation, case management, peer support, and medication management. The shared decision making aspect of the program allows potential clients and the clinicians to work together to set goals and create an action plan to achieve these goals.
"New Journeys is 'to live independently without the trials of mental illness. To be strong in the face of adversity.'"

Central Assessment of Psychosis Service (CAPS)
University of Washington
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
1959 NE Pacific St., Seattle, WA 98195
The Central Assessment of Psychosis (CAPS) will extend specialized expertise in screening and assessment of psychosis and psychosis-risk states by offering remote-delivered psychological testing (tele-evaluation) and professional consultation (teleconsultation) to help accurately identify youth and young adults earlier in the course of a psychotic illness.
Goals of the CAPS program are to: Increase access to comprehensive psychodiagnostic and neurocognitive testing, including gold standard assessment of psychosis risk states; provide treatment recommendations to care providers; support engagement in effective care; and reduce the duration of untreated psychosis in our region
Please note that, at this time, tele-evaluations are only open to select New Journeys sites.

Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine
Outpatient Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Clinic
4800 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105
At Seattle Children’s Hospital Outpatient Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine we offer services for adolescents experiencing an early onset of psychotic episode. Services include diagnostic evaluation, including second opinion diagnostic evaluation, as well as coordinated care. Coordinated care can include Individual Resiliency Training, medication management, and support and coaching for parents/guardians. Adolescents must be 13-17 years old upon entering the program. They work with adolescents through age 18 years or up to two years. Exclusion criteria include intellectual disability, and psychotic experiences related to mood disorders like bipolar disorder. We accept referrals from medical providers like pediatricians, therapists, psychiatrists, and other medical subspecialists. Our psychiatrist provides the initial diagnostic evaluation in order to rule out medical contributions to possible psychotic experiences.
