Early Psychosis Intervention Programme

The Early Psychosis Intervention Programme (EPIP) was initiated in April 2001 under the auspices of the Ministry of Health, Singapore, and specialises in the early detection and management for individuals (16-40 years old) with early psychosis and those at high risk of developing psychosis.

EPIP offers comprehensive and patient-centred treatment of a high quality, via an intergrated, approach. EPIP’s services are available across inpatient, outpatient and community settings.

For inpatients, our EPIP inpatient centre is an exclusive 20-bedder B2- and C-class facility designed with therapeutic work and recovery in mind. Aside from features like an open pantry, a night lounge and an outdoor garden, there are programmes and activities designed for meaningful engagement towards recovery.
