Interventions for Changes in Emotions, Perception, and Thinking (INTERCEPT) is a unique mental health program for young people aged 15 to 28. Designed to address new and distressing symptoms in their early stages, it offers opportunities to help prevent progression to more serious conditions.

Through INTERCEPT, young people can learn to identify, monitor, and manage changes in behavior and mental health. Treatment components are tailored to the individual and can include individual and group therapy, problem solving, social skills training, goal planning, and more. Structured to minimize disruptions to school, work, and relationships, INTERCEPT can help young people make “course corrections” on their journey to mental wellness.


INTERCEPT aims to prevent the progression of early symptoms into serious psychiatric conditions. Treatment is tailored to the unique needs of each patient, but generally, the components of treatment include:

  • Cognitive-behavior therapy and other forms of individual psychotherapy
  • Group therapy
  • Psycho-education
  • Safety planning
  • Problem-solving
  • Assistance with difficulties in school or at work
  • Goal setting
  • Relapse prevention
  • Social skills training
  • Treatment for substance use
  • Involvement of the family
  • Medication as needed
  • Other interventions as needed, including sleep, nutrition, and exercise
