Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis
The Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis (PARC) serves Indiana as a center of clinical, research and educational excellence in the treatment of individuals in the early stages of schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses.
Why is Getting Treatment Early so Important?
For many people, schizophrenia develops into a serious, life-long illness. Unfortunately, individuals with schizophrenia may cope with life-disrupting symptoms that lead to hospitalization, social isolation, substance abuse and even suicide. However, research shows that the earlier that people receive effective treatment, the better their chances are of avoiding these negative outcomes.
During its early stages, schizophrenia can be confused with other mental illnesses. That’s why PARC offers a thorough, comprehensive clinical assessment to individuals with the early signs of psychotic illnesses to help clarify what’s going on.
