We are accepting new members on a rolling basis during 2021/22. If you're interested in joining, please get in touch with us and we can arrange a call to give you further information and talk you through the review process.

The cost of membership is dependent on the size of your service and number of sub-teams. Further information about 2021 pricing can be found in our membership document.

The Early Intervention in Psychosis Network (EIPN) is a network of early intervention in psychosis (EIP) teams. We facilitate quality improvement and development in EIP services through a supportive peer-review model and enabling communication and the sharing of best practice between services.

We assess quality of care in EIP teams using our Standards for Early Intervention in Psychosis Services by a process of self- and peer-review. We offer supportive developmental membership and accreditation membership.

EIPN is open to all EIP services in the United Kingdom.

We can bring a wide range of benefits to your EIP team including:

  • Promoting quality improvement and supporting the sharing best practice
  • Helping services plan improvements for the future
  • Building a community of EIP teams who can learn from one another
  • Allowing services to benchmark their practices against similar services
  • Demonstrating the quality of the team's processes through accreditation
  • Encouraging a culture of openness and create a model of engagement.

A key role for service users is to ensure that the views and experiences of service users using early intervention services are used to inform and guide the work we do.

Similarly, carer representatives ensure that the voices of the families and friends of service users are heard in discussions about service development.

Our aim is to have a service user and/or carer representative attend peer-reviews as part of a external review team and they take part in discussions with staff, senior managers, and chair meetings with service users/carers of other EIP teams across the UK.
