Wake OASIS changes name to UNC Wake Encompass

Wake OASIS becomes UNC Wake Encompass effective June 1. A specialty clinic for adolescents and young adults, Wake Encompass will remain at the same address 3010 Falstaff Rd. in Raleigh and is housed with the Center’s ACT (Assertive Community Treatment) Team, the Wake STEP Clinic, and the North Carolina Psychiatric Research Center (NCPRC).

The Wake Encompass clinic serves adolescents ages 16-18 and young adults in Wake County who are experiencing a recent onset episode of early psychosis (mental illness). Research indicates that adolescents and young adults who receive comprehensive treatment during their first episode of psychosis have better treatment outcomes and are less likely to become disabled.

“The name change to Wake Encompass reflects a department management change that occurred last year,” says Thava Mahadevan, MS, director of operations at the Center. “We look forward to providing the same quality care for adolescents and young adults in Wake County who have experienced a recent onset psychosis.”

Staff and phone number 919.445.0401 remain the same. Cathy Lee, MD, is the medical director and Claudia Driver, LMFT, the clinical director.

UNC OASIS located in Chapel Hill-Orange County, continues to operate as part of the UNC Department of Psychiatry and is headed by Diane Perkin MD, MPH.
