PARC - Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis
The Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis (PARC) at Eskenazi Health serves Indiana as a center for innovative treatment, groundbreaking research, and educational excellence in the treatment of individuals experiencing the early stages of psychotic illnesses.
PARC focuses on treatment, education, and research.
- Treatment - PARC utilizes client-focused treatment methods to help individuals develop and maintain strong relationships in order to support their recovery and prevent relapse. Multiple treatment approaches are offered including medication management, psychotherapy, case management, counseling, education, and crisis intervention.
- Education - PARC is dedicated to educating not only patients, but also their families and the greater community. PARC believes in the importance of communication to better the understanding of psychotic disorders, so we work with community-based professionals and healthcare providers to ensure that the best treatment is always available. Addtionally, we strive to educate those beyond the mental health field by conducting presentations about the signs and symptoms of psychotic disorders to the greater community.
- Research - There is still so much more to learn about psychotic disorders. PARC is invested in answering research questions that will advance the understanding of these illnesses and develop new and improved treatments.
If left untreated, psychotic disorders can develop into a serious and life-long illness. Individuals may experience life-disrupting symptoms leading to hospitalizations, social isolation, substance abuse, and in some cases suicide. Fortunately, research shows that early intervention can increase the chances of avoiding these negative outcomes. PARC is dedicated to early detection through comprehensive clinical assessments and intensive treatments to help individuals achieve their goals.

The Prevention and Recovery Center for Early Psychosis Coordinated Specialty Care (PARC CSC) is a clinical treatment program for individuals aged 16-30 that are within three years of onset of symptoms of psychosis. Our treatment program provides comprehensive and intensive services utilizing a multidisciplinary team based approach. Clinical treatment services include medication management, nursing and metabolic monitoring, therapy, psychoeducation (individual, group, family), case management, supportive education and employment services (SEES), and outreach/education. The treatment model includes attempting to meet clients where they are and engage them in services utilizing shared decision making. The comprehensive services offered are intended to engage individuals on a more consistent basis than what you might expect at other mental health clinics. The focus of the program is to provide recovery oriented care aimed at assisting clients to achieve levels of recovery that include more than symptom remission. We strive to help clients get back to important life roles and live a fully satisfying life, with respect to clients’ unique interests, life circumstances, and goals.
PARC CSC offers five different group activities for our clients to enjoy!
