Prevention and
Early Intervention (PEI)


PEI seeks to reduce risk factors and build protective factors which increase resiliency, interpersonal connections and raise the general level of health and well being for individuals, families and community. The role of PEI is applicable through the lifespan from young childhood to older adulthood.

The role of Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) is two-fold:

  • To take action prior to the development of serious mental health issues; and
  • To catch mental health issues in their earliest stages to prevent long-term suffering.
