Psychosis Recovery Outreach Program

The Psychosis Recovery Outreach Program (PROP) was established in 2016 in the department of psychiatry to serve individuals suffering from psychosis and their families in Lebanon and the region. It is the first of its kind in the country and suitable for anyone who is experiencing their first episode of psychosis or who has experienced it any point in their life. There are no age restrictions.

It is an integrated program led by Dr Joseph El-Khoury, psychiatrist with established experience in the treatment of severe mental disorders, including psychotic illnesses. It relies on a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals, including doctors, psychologists, nurses, social workers and researchers.

Priority is given to the clinical care of our patients, through every stage of their illness. We also provide support services for families in addition to our involvement in professional education and research.

Admission to the program takes place by referral in the inpatient or outpatient setting.  A comprehensive assessment of the patient’s condition and needs leads to the development of a personalized care plan. Our aim is to go beyond reducing the symptoms to improving the quality of life where possible. Interventions can include all or some of the following list:

Psychiatric Reviews
Prescribing and monitoring of medications
Physical health checks,
Specialized individual therapy
Family counselling and support
Social and employment support
Group therapy
Nursing drop-in service
Nursing home visit service
