Schizophrenia Society of Canada

The Schizophrenia Society of Canada Foundation (SSCF) was founded in 1994 with a generous donation from the late Dr. Michael Smith. Dr. Smith's donation of half of his Nobel Prize Laureate monies was used to help form a research fund. It is a legacy that continues to inspire others to invest in research initiatives today.

The Schizophrenia Society of Canada Foundation (SSCF) was created by the Schizophrenia Society of Canada (SSC) with the objectives of advancing research in schizophrenia and psychosis through fund development, funding relevant research projects, promoting research and supporting SSC.

The Schizophrenia Society of Canada exists to improve the quality of life for those affected by schizophrenia and psychosis through education, support programs, public policy and research. Using a federation model, the Schizophrenia Society of Canada works with provincial Schizophrenia Societies to improve the lives of individuals living with schizophrenia, as well as their families.

Schizophrenia and psychosis are characterized by delusions, hallucinations, disturbances in thinking and withdrawal from social activity. Although they are serious mental illnesses, schizophrenia and psychosis are treatable and most people do go on to live lives of recovery. Thus, they support the Mental Health Commission of Canada in creating a national recovery-oriented mental health system in their country.

While the exact causes of schizophrenia specifically are still a mystery, it is believed the illness is caused by a biochemical imbalance. Fortunately today there are various treatment options and community supports and services to assist those with the lived experience of schizophrenia and psychosis to move forward in recovery.
