The Partnership Program is a stigma busting initiative built around our one-hour, anti-stigma, public awareness presentations.
We share stories of recovery from schizophrenia and related mental illnesses with the public while informing them on how to seek treatment and services.
Goals of a presentation: to promote recovery from schizophrenia and related mental illnesses, reduce the stigma and misconceptions associated with mental health disorders, and share resources so people know where and how to get help.
The Partnership Program puts a positive face of recovery at the forefront of mental illness by dispelling the myths and fears the general public has. We present to a wide variety of groups such as:
- High Schools and Youth Organizations
- RCMP and Police Services
- Universities and Colleges
- First Nations and Indigenous Groups
- Drug and Alcohol Detox Centers
- Faith Groups
