Why iHope?

Early intervention is key to helping adolescents and young adults deal with psychosis. Early treatment is very effective and leads to a healthier life. School failures become school successes and the risk of suicide, accidental death or harm are greatly diminished.

Early treatment ensures a better and faster recovery by reducing symptom progression. With treatment young people can maintain their personal identity, be an advocate for themselves and potentially avoid hospitalization.

The likelihood of successful treatment outcomes and fewer problems in adulthood are increased dramatically with early treatment.
