World Fellowship For Schizophrenia And Allied Disorders

The WFSAD has worked with families of those with serious mental illness and family organizations dedicated to this cause since 1982. They are very proud of what WFSAD and its members have been able to achieve over this time.

The World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders (WFSAD) is the only global grassroots organization dedicated to lightening the burden of schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses for sufferers and their families.

WFSAD strives to increase knowledge, understanding and compassion and reduce the fear, stigma, discrimination and abuse that accompany these difficult conditions. WFSAD and its member organizations focus on the humane treatment of people with schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses and on their primary care, which falls frequently upon the family, most often the parents, and can last a lifetime. There is need for housing, rehabilitation, recreation and a decent life for those battling these difficult conditions. It is estimated that some 40% of sufferers have no contact with formal mental health systems. Support, training and education is necessary for families and their sick loved-ones, who have an enormous and continuing burden to shoulder.

WFSAD Members and Associates provide direct services for people with schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses and their families; they run self-help groups; conduct workshops; produce educational materials; arrange conferences; advocate for better treatment and appropriate services; manage research funds and thus influence government policies. Their network grows constantly as an increasing number of families and members of the caring professions seek their help and support their cause.
