Do you want to make a difference in the fight against stigma? We need your help!

When you sign up to become a speaker you will be provided with assistance by the program coordinators when developing your presentation. The Partnership Program is a team comprised of three different roles that you may fit into.

Person with lived experience of mental illness:

If you are a person who lives with schizophrenia, psychosis, or a related mental illness such as schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, clinical depression or anxiety; then you might fit into this role. We provide an opportunity for you to share your story of recovery and hope with others.

Family member of someone with a mental illness:

If you are a family member of someone living with schizophrenia, psychosis, or a related mental illness such as schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, clinical depression or anxiety; then you might fit into this role. We provide an opportunity for you to share your story of supporting your loved one and how you have been affected by mental illness with others.

Our Mental Health Advocate

If you have a passion for mental health and enjoy public speaking, then you might fit into this role. Mental health advocates share common misconceptions and stigmas, wellness tools and resources, while also providing a brief overview of schizophrenia and related mental illnesses.
