These patients receive treatments at UIC either as inpatients at the University Hospital, or as outpatients in a specialty clinic, the Anchorpoint Clinic. The Anchor Point clinic is primarily an outpatient Resident staffed clinic practicing within the ‘recovery model’.  Our at-risk population includes the campuses of 7-8 universities in the area, providing a unique opportunity to work with First Episode psychosis.
