FIRST EPISODE PSYCHOSIS ADULT CLINIC
The first episode psychosis clinic focuses on the early assessment and treatment of people experiencing their first episode of psychosis. Psychotic symptoms can be caused by multiple different etiologies and are treatable. Symptoms of psychosis can include hallucinations, delusional thinking, disorganized thinking or speech, cognitive difficulty, lack of motivation, isolation and difficulty in school or work. If yourself or a loved one may be experiencing symptoms of psychosis, an evaluation for possible treatment in the clinic is available. If you live outside of the Twin Cities metro, we do offer the option of a tele-health service for our First Episode IOP, individual therapy, and medication management programs.

Clients utilize these skills to work towards individual goals, often returning to work or school. We strive to develop long term, and meaningful relationships with our clients, to help support each individual on their path.

TREATMENT RESISTANT DEPRESSION – ADULT TMS CLINIC SERVICES
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an evidence based non-invasive procedure used for the treatment of medication resistant depression. Through the use of a Brainsway helmet, pulsating magnetic fields are used to increase activity in the frontal lobe of the brain with the goal of total remission from symptoms of depression. The use of TMS for treatment of depression has been found to be not only highly effective in reducing symptoms, but also cost effective for patients. To be eligible for TMS treatment patients must have a diagnosis of Major Depression, recurrent, severe. Patient must also must have tried four medications without improvement and a sufficient trial of evidence-based psychotherapy.
- 36-37 Treatments over 8-12 weeks, as recommended by the TMS Psychiatrist and authorized by insurance
- Treatments typically last 20 minutes
- In addition to TMS treatment, patients will meet with the TMS Psychiatrist regularly throughout treatment
- Please refer to the “TMS Roadmap” for a more detailed description of a typical TMS treatment at PrairieCare.
The completion of a phone screen and TMS Doctor Referral Form is required to schedule a TMS consultation. If you have questions regarding TMS please contact our TMS Care Coordinator at 952-737-4510 or at CFN@prairie-care.com .
TMS Clinic Hours: Monday thru Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm

Medication Management is provided by a licensed prescriber, which may be a Psychiatrist or Clinical Nurse Specialist. These staff members are highly trained and integrate the management of specialized medication to alleviate symptoms and complement the other treatment modalities.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy
Accelerated Resolution Therapy®, or ART for short, is a new form of eye movement therapy similar to eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). As an evidence-based form of psychotherapy—and the next generation of eye movement therapy—ART utilizes back-and-forth eye movements to help your brain focus on a problem, process emotions and sensations related to the problem, and find the solution to resolve it through memory reconsolidation. For clients who have found traditional therapeutic interventions to be unsuccessful, ART could provide the relief they are looking for. It has shown to be effective with those struggling with post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, grief, poor self-esteem, pain management, or any other emotional difficulty.
