Empowering futures, instilling hope, advancing research.

The Path Program strives to promote well-being, instill hope, and grow self confidence among teens and young adults at risk for developing or experiencing psychosis in the San Francisco Bay Area. 



Path Program coordinated specialty care plan 

A Path Program coordinated specialty care plan includes five components. 

Expert diagnostic assessment

Clinical diagnostic assessments can help participants and their families understand their recent experiences.  We provide diagnostic assessments at entry into the Path Program or as second opinions to community clinicians planning to provide ongoing care. 


Talk therapy can help build personal skills of resilience, management, and coping.  Our therapists are trained in cognitive-behavior therapy, and deliver both 1:1 and group therapy. 

Medication management

Like all aspects of treatment, medication depends on the individual's needs and preferences. Medication can help reduce the distress and impairment associated with psychosis.  We always aim to maximize its benefits and minimize its risks. 

Family support & education

We offer multifamily group sessions and other tools that are designed to keep family members educated, informed and engaged. 

Case management

Skill-building to help individuals overcome practical life challenges. This includes support with applying for jobs, opening bank accounts, and connecting with educators or employers during treatment and recovery. 



Frequently asked questions

How long does the program take?

Because the Path Program is focused on the early stages of psychosis, when treatment is most effective, most of our participants graduate from our program after about two years.

The Path Program is for young people who: 

  • Are 35 years old or younger 
  • Have recently started experiencing symptoms of psychosis or milder forms of these symptoms that indicate future risk for psychosis
