Why do I feel this way?
Are you or someone you know...
Seeing or hearing things that other people don't, like shadows in the corner of your eyes?
Having unusual thoughts, like experiencing the TV, Internet, or music sending you special messages?
Having a lot more energy than usual and racing thoughts, so much that you can't sleep for days?
Are these things bothering you or causing you to be concerned?
You may be experiencing
symptoms of psychosis. Psychosis is a lot more common than
you think. You are not alone.
The Early Assessment and Alliance (EASA) can help. EASA provides information and support to young people experiencing symptoms of psychosis for the first time.
Join EASA participants, graduates, families, and staff at the first ever State of EASA Forum, November 3rd from 1pm-4:30 pm, with a bowling party to follow. We want to celebrate the past, present and future of EASA, and kickoff the Nov. 4th - 5th joint EASA/ORCA Conference. This event is free to all who want to participate. Register today!
