To improve the quality of life for those affected by schizophrenia and psychosis through education, support programs, public policy and research

- Stress early intervention with the most effective medications and treatments available;
- Speak on behalf of families when they are unable to do so for themselves;
- Support research to identify the precise causes and find a cure for schizophrenia;
- Raise funds to finance these activities; and,
- Work in partnership with other agencies, groups, departments of government, and the Schizophrenia Society of Canada and its provincial partners to achieve these goals.
