With Schizophrenia Awareness Week fast approaching, this year SANE Australia is inviting people to ‘Discover More’ about its creative and passionate community living with schizophrenia.
In addition to encouraging everyone to ‘Discover More’ about schizophrenia itself, which affects roughly 20 million people worldwide, we’re sharing our Peer Ambassadors’ stories to spotlight their challenges, successes, hopes and tips for living with schizophrenia, and to share the many things they’d like others to discover about their lives.
Take a look at the many ways you can join the discussion with SANE during Schizophrenia Awareness Week, held Sunday 23 to Saturday 29 May 2021.
Last week was a momentous one for those of us advocating for change across the mental health landscape. On Monday the Federal Government released the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into mental health final report and the Prime Minister Scott Morrison gave a keynote address underscoring his government’s commitment to mental health reform.
