PEPPNET's Mission

To support the national network of programs providing services to those at risk for or experiencing early psychosis by promoting communication, collaboration, and best practices so that individuals and families experiencing early psychosis have timely access to specialized, appropriate, and affordable care.



PEPPNET acts as a forum to share information nationally about ongoing early psychosis initiatives and aims to bring together individuals from diverse fields and backgrounds to forge national connections and address issues and topics relevant to early psychosis at a local, state, and national level.


The network believes that addressing evolving needs and barriers to early psychosis implementation will ensure that all individuals experiencing early psychosis have access to specialized, appropriate, accessible, and affordable care through the principles of evidence-based treatment, collaboration, and recovery-orientation.


Through its workgroups and community partner coordination, PEPPNET aims to identify emergent needs and address gaps in order to promote implementation of practical, affordable, evidence-based early psychosis initiatives nationally.
