Supportive Outreach & Access to Resources

Supportive Outreach & Access to Resources

Through Supportive Outreach & Access to Resources (SOAR), Aldea helps people who are experiencing the symptoms of early psychosis to reduce and manage their symptoms so they may succeed in education, careers and relationships.

Based on the model developed by Cameron Carter, MD of the UC Davis Early Diagnosis and Preventative Treatment Clinic, SOAR components include:

Community outreach to local schools, special education programs and service providers to teach staff and volunteers how to identify signs of early psychosis

Treatment services, including:

    • Psychiatric medication management
    • Individualized clinical case management
    • Weekly psychoeducation and support groups
    • Weekly multi-family support groups (Napa County Only)
    • Bi-monthly family and multi-family support groups (Solano County Only)
    • Peer advocate support
    • Education and employment support

Eligibility criteria includes:

  1. Ages: Medi-Cal & Uninsured clients ages 8-30 in Napa and 12-30 in Solano & Sonoma; Kaiser clients 12-25 only
  2. IQ > 70, no significant medical illness/ injury associated with psychotic symptoms OR condition that impairs cognition (e.g. head injury, tumor, etc.)
  3. Clinical criteria must include one or more of the following:
    1. Onset of psychosis within the past two years; or,
    2. Attenuated psychotic symptoms (of any duration); or,
    3. Recent deterioration in ability to cope with stressors and have a parent or sibling with a history of psychotic disorder; or,
    4. Diagnosis of Mood/Bipolar Disorder (with attenuated psychotic symptoms of any duration OR fully psychotic features with onset in the past two years).
