To alleviate the suffering caused by schizophrenia and other serious mental illness.
About PATHWAYS SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS SOCIETY
For almost three decades, Pathways Society has been helping family members cope with mental illness in a loved one and, through this vital support, has helped their mentally ill relatives in turn. It's support, too, of a unique, and uniquely valuable, kind. Our organization, as we explain on our website, "consists of family members and friends of the mentally ill who have been through it, know what others are going through and can share their experiences." Families helping families.
Operating through our Family Support Centre, open five days a week (with crisis contact after hours), and with the assistance of staff, we provide support, counselling, information, education, advocacy and outreach services. The Centre helps families dealing with all serious mental illnesses: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety disorders. We fight stigma and advocate for families and patients. It's front-line work - and work that makes a difference.
