The Institute’s ProSPECT (Prevention of Symptoms and Psychosis through Education and Cognitive Therapy) program offers specialized services for adolescents and young adults ages 14-25 who may be experiencing changes in their mental health.

ProSPECT offers specialized evaluation, education about mental health and mental health treatment, individual, group and family therapy, and help with school or employment. The goal of ProSPECT is to prevent or delay the onset of a first episode of psychosis and minimize the length of untreated psychosis. Services are available onsite at 1824 Madison Avenue (at 119th Street) and 230 West 17th Street (between 7th and 8th avenues) in Manhattan.

If you or someone you know is:

  • Worried that someone is watching them, talking about them or may want to hurt them
  • Feeling confused about what is real and what isn’t
  • Withdrawing from family and friends
  • Noticing changes in the way things look or sound

…call (212) 423-4200 and press 1 to learn more. You will be connected to one of the ProSPECT clinicians to further discuss the program and any potential referrals. You can also download our ProSPECT program flier.

The ProSPECT program is funded by SAMHSA, through a partnership with Mount Sinai and the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene.
