About SCHIZOPHRENIA SOCIETY OF ONTARIO
SSO raises awareness and support to improve the lives of individuals in Ontario who are impacted by schizophrenia and psychosis. A diagnosis of schizophrenia reaches beyond the individual with the illness. It also impacts friends and family who provide a crucial support network. SSO is committed to helping all Ontarians understand the facts related to this illness. Stigma and misinformation about the illness are prevalent and can stand in the way of people living the full and meaningful lives they deserve. The SSO helps people to understand schizophrenia which dispels the myths.
PEACE OF MINDS
The Peace of Minds campaign – a fundraising and awareness initiative – reflects the fact that a diagnosis of schizophrenia changes so many lives. It touches not only the person with the diagnosis, but all the important people in their lives. It’s truly a community illness and demands a community response. The campaign initiatives support individuals with the illness and their families.
