Nicholas Breitborde heads the new Early Psychosis Intervention Center at University Physicians Hospital.

Recent events have made some Arizonans examine their attitudes toward mental illness and think about ways they might extend help to those in need. Dr. Nick Breitborde is the director of the Early Psychosis Intervention Center (EPICENTER) at University Physicians Hospital. He says the center is aimed at early detection and treatment of mental illness in young adults, and accepts patients based on need, not their ability to pay.
