Innovative training for youth mental health services

Depressed Teen Boy

The PIER Training Institute teaches a new way of thinking about prevention and treatment of mental illness in youths. We help mental health providers and organizations across the nation bring the power of The PIER Model to their community. Join the growing number of communities that are helping to minimize the negative impact of severe mental illness in adolescents and young adults so they can live healthy, rewarding and productive lives.

Early detection 

We train and certify organizations in the innovative PIER Model and Family Psychoeducation, enabling early detection of psychosis in youths.

 Early intervention 

By identifying severe mental illness and intervening early, we bring hope to young people, their families, and communities.

 Early treatment 

Through the PIER Model, we can recognize the symptoms of severe mental illness in youth and stop its progression.
