Narrative

CEDAR is a specialized center for young people (ages 12-35)* who are experiencing new or worsening symptoms that may be warning signs for psychosis.  These can include:
     Difficulties thinking clearly or concentrating
     Suspiciousness or uneasiness with others
     Increased sensitivity to sights or sounds
     Withdrawing from friends and family
     Unusual and/or intense beliefs
     Seeing, hearing, or smelling things that others don't
     Unusual behavior or appearance
     Vague or unusual speech
     Worsening school and/or work performance

Because CEDAR programs are specialized, our staff will speak with all new referrals to screen for eligibility. If you are not eligible, we will help direct you to other services that may be a better fit.   

Those who have already received a clear diagnosis of a psychotic illness such as schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder may be a better fit for a program that specializes in treating first episode psychosis.
