SSO To Hold Community Forum on January 31

The SSO strongly believes that individuals and families living with schizophrenia & psychotic illnesses are the real experts in this area.  Occasions are needed for these individuals and families to come together to share their experiences, connect work together to develop solutions. The SSO is therefore launching a series of Community Forums which will bring together people who are directly affected by schizophrenia, psychosis and other psychotic illnesses and create a place where open dialogue can flow, challenges can be discussed, experience and expertise can be shared and common solutions can be developed.

The first Community Forum will be held in Toronto on January 31 (exact location TBD) from 6:00 - 9:30 pm.  The Forum is free and is open to individuals and families living with schizophrenia, psychosis and/or mental health issues.  Service providers and interested parties are also welcome
