Horyzons is an online social media platform for individuals experiencing psychosis and receiving services at first episode psychosis clinics in North Carolina. The digital platform allows users to learn skills such as coping and mindfulness through educational and therapeutic material as well as connect with other young people who have had similar experiences.
Horyzons is a peer-led space. Users can request to chat with a peer support worker, and they may react or respond to posts on the community page. There are also Horyzons Hangs, which is a space for users to get together via Zoom every other week to chat and hang out for an hour or so and catch up or play games. These Horyzons Hangs are completely optional.
