is an initial episode of psychosis that affects the mind, blurring reality and can show itself any time between youth and early adulthood.  Symptoms include:

  • withdrawing from friends and family
  • exhibiting disorganized speech and erratic behavior
  • hearing or seeing things that others do not
  • feeling fearful or suspicious of others
  • having thoughts or beliefs that appear strange

Recognizing the signs and symptoms early can provide the best hope for recovery and seeking out treatment can be difficult for someone going through it.  They may need your help, as if left untreated, these thoughts, feelings and behaviors can become worse over time.  If someone you know is experiencing the beginning signs and symptoms, the ASCENT program in our Grand Junction office can help.

ASCENT is a holistic approach to mental wellness, supporting kids age 15 and up who are experiencing troubling thoughts and/or the onset of psychosis.  For more information or to make a referral, contact our Grand Junction office at 970.241.6023.
