PREP Mission: PREP’s mission is to deliver comprehensive treatment grounded in wellness, recovery and resilience to people experiencing symptoms of psychosis, as well as their families.

PREP Vision: To transform the treatment and perception of psychosis – and by extension the lives of young people and their families – by intervening early with evidence-based, culturally competent assessment and diagnosis so that within five years of entering treatment most cases of psychosis are treated to remission.

PREP is a community partnership between The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and Felton Institute, along with the county behavioral health systems of San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Monterey, and San Joaquin Counties (including the Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services – Transition Age Youth System of Care), the East Bay Community Recovery Project, the Mental Health Association of Alameda County, and Sojourner Truth Foster Family Services. The Mental Health Association of San Francisco was also a key partner in developing the PREP program in its early years.

The goals that drive the PREP program are as follows:

PREP tracks specific, measurable outcomes including real world impacts to measure our success, meet funder reporting requirements, and inform ongoing program improvement efforts.
