Schizophrenia Society of Ontario – Web and Telephone Support

Group Name: Schizophrenia Society of Ontario – Web and Telephone Support

Description: The Schizophrenia Society of Ontario makes a positive difference in the lives of people, families and communities affected by schizophrenia and psychotic illnesses. We envision a world without schizophrenia. For this to happen society must recognize schizophrenia as a serious brain disease, excellence in service and treatment must become the norm, stigma must be eliminated, and a cure must be found.

Do you have questions about living well with schizophrenia or pyschosis? We can help. The Schizophrenia Society of Ontario’s Ask the Expert program addresses practical questions about living with schizophrenia and psychotic illnesses, as well as provides guidance on how to navigate the mental health system and shares information on local resources. It also facilitates local support groups to enable people to come together and share vital information. All questions and responses are kept private and confidential. Here’s how to get in touch:

  • Email your question to: asktheexpert@schizophrenia.on.ca
  • Please include the city and postal code in which you live so that information about local resources can be shared with you
  • Allow three business day for a response.
