Ascent Program

SummitStone is working to address the needs of our youth, young adults and families in Larimer County who may find themselves experiencing First Episode Psychosis (FEP). We know psychosis can be treated, and early treatment increases the chance of a successful recovery.

The Ascent program provides evidenced-based practices to youth and young adults who are 15 to 29 years old. Clients receive treatment from an interdisciplinary team, who provide therapy, support for their employment and educational goals, assistance in managing symptoms, as well as helping them with medication and primary care coordination.
