LIFE Path (Lasting Independence, Family Empowerment)
LIFE Path is a program specifically designed to provide Early Intervention for 14 – 25 year old Stanislaus County Residents who have experienced initial symptoms of psychosis within the last year. The program provides intensive treatment for consumers, families, caregivers, and significant support persons across a spectrum of specialized services.

Additionally, the LIFE Path Program is dedicated to the ongoing efforts of mental health awareness by increasing collaboration and education to community partners in order to heighten understanding of early symptoms and decrease the stigmatization of psychosis.
