ReachOut Project Wins Award

smalltotemThe ReachOut Psychosis program, managed by Sophia Kelly, won the Schizophrenia Society of Canada Initiatives/Programs of Excellence Award for 2008.

Tailored Tech (formerly Sophia Kelly Data Web and Project Consulting) has been involved with the ReachOut psychosis project almost since it’s inception. As project manager, Sophia Kelly has coordinated rapid expansion of the program, which provides important early intervention education to psychosis onset age youth, embedded in a rock concert and spoken word presentation. The program reaches over 24000 youth per year with information that helps get young people with emerging psychosis to medical help fast. Early medical treatment has been shown to dramatically improve outcomes for this condition. In addition to the Programs of Excellence award, a video about the project ( http://www.reachoutpsychosis.com ) was featured at the 6th International Conference on Early Psychosis October 22-24 in Melbourne, Australia.

Tailored Tech manages program staff, conducts program planning, and evaluation and provides  communications and marketing services, including print, stage and web media for this project. Our client, the BC Schizophrenia Society, is provided with a high-quality, continually evaluated and improved program, on budget and meetingor exceeding project goals.
