Last year I was a speaker at the events and shared how I use the yoga event as an opportunity to spread awareness for Schizophrenia. It was nice to connect with others at the event that have had similar challenges. I am looking forward to seeing the community of people again.

My older brother, Aaron has been challenged by Schizophrenia.

Aaron’s determination and courage has allowed him to continue to gain a greater sense of purpose. Aaron (in 40's) is still adventurous as he does a back flip in the pool.

My Church did this teaching: Schizophrenia and the Role of Family

You can help by continuing to reduce the stigma around mental illness. The hope is that those experiencing their initial symptoms feel comfortable discussing them.
