A Program Directory of Early Psychosis Intervention Programs was produced by the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care and the EASA Center for Excellence in 2014, and it provides listings and contact information for program sites across the country doing work in the area of early intervention for psychosis (prodromal and first episode)

In addition to information for patients and families, there is a section on Early Psychosis Services that allows users to view lists of clinics within several countries across the globe.
