Description

Continuing the Conversation

Continuing from our last conversation on understanding Mental Health, this time we'll be discussing Schizophrenia. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, "Schizophrenia is a mystery, a puzzle with missing pieces."

The Canadian Mental Health Association goes on to say that one of the biggest myths around the illness is that it isn't treatable. However, through discussion and education members of the community can work together in finding solutions and creating support systems to help.

In this conversation, we'll be discussing what Schizophrenia is, how it can occur, how to help someone you know who may be experiencing schizophrenia, what issues currently exist within our system and what we can do as a community to move things in a positive direction.

Participants are reminded that this is a safe space for all to share their experiences of mental health.

This event is for anyone:

  • looking to understand what schizophrenia is and how to help someone who may be experiencing it.
  • looking to discuss what problems and issues exist within the sector and how it can be solved for individuals with schizophrenia.
  • wants to be part of a growing community that is looking to seek and provide knowledge in mental health
