Path Program Extension Clinic
The UCSF Path Program Extension Clinic offers specialized outpatient services and support for adults experiencing symptoms of psychosis or recovering from psychosis. Working with patients who are already diagnosed, we develop wellness plans tailored to their individual needs and aspirations, with the goal of helping them achieve lasting autonomy. We envision a future where people who have experienced psychosis find the understanding and hope to pursue fulfilling, meaningful lives.
If you're under 35 years old and began experiencing symptoms of psychosis only recently, the UCSF Path Program for Early Psychosis may be a better fit for you. Learn more on our website or contact our team for information.
Our services include:
- Mental health evaluations. Our team provides diagnostic assessments to help clients understand their mental health experiences and chart a path forward.
- Personalized specialty care. Our therapists have extensive experience in supporting individuals experiencing psychosis. We collaborate with clients to create wellness plans that consider both their mental health needs and individual life goals.
- Medication management. Our use of medication depends on individual needs and preferences. We work with patients to find the lowest dose that both maximizes effectiveness and minimizes side effects and risks.
- Time-limited psychotherapy. Our therapists offer individual therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy for psychosis (CBTp), to build patients' resilience and coping skills. Psychotherapy services are typically offered for 16 to 20 weeks.
- Care coordination. Our team collaborates with other providers to deliver holistic care. We offer limited case management to connect patients with other types of support they may need, such as vocational, educational and disability services as well as legal documentation.
- Opportunities for research participation. Interested clients may have the opportunity to participate in studies related to psychosis. Participants receive free health assessments and compensation for their time.
