Are you a young person experiencing psychosis or mental ill-health?
What is the Early Intervention Recovery Program?
The MIFWA Early Intervention Recovery Program (EIRP) is for young people aged 16 to 30 years who have been diagnosed with a mental illness including first episode of psychosis.
Operating across the Perth Metropolitan area, our EIRP team supports people to re-establish or maintain social, professional and educational networks.
The program is initially for 6 months but can continue for up to one year.
