The Early Psychological Intervention Clinic, EPIC, is designed to engage with persons ages 15 to 30 who are experiencing psychosis for the first time or within the first two years of onset of symptoms. Due to the stigma and fear surrounding a first psychotic break, many times individuals are reluctant to seek help or even tell anyone about the things they are experiencing. The staff provide outreach to agencies, schools, universities and other providers to educate and provide a referral source for individuals they are treating who may be eligible. The program is designed to provide training and support to assist eligible individuals with reaching their educational, employment and life goals regardless of diagnosis as well as providing medication support for the illness they are faced with.

Michelle Thiel, team lead, is the licensed professional counselor for the program and has experience working with young people, as well as persons experiencing chronic, persistent mental illness. Danielle Miller, Kendra Overbey and Sakurah Fisher are all qualified mental health professionals working with participants on coping strategies, understanding their illness, education and employment related skills and supports, and providing outreach to the community, among other services. All services provided are focused on assisting participants in reaching goals to achieve recovery and life goals. 

Spindletop Center's Job of the Week posts this month included Registered Nurse, Mental Health First Aid Outreach Coordinator, Human Service Tech II, Licensed Vocational Nurse II and Qualified Mental Health Professional!
