National Schizophrenia and Psychosis Awareness Day


CMHA recognizes National Schizophrenia and Psychosis Awareness Day

On this National Schizophrenia and Psychosis Awareness Day, CMHA Champlain East wants to bring light to these serious mental illnesses and stamp out myths and misinformation that may be associated with these conditions.

Symptoms may include persistent delusions, hallucinations, disorganised thinking, highly disorganized behaviour or extreme agitation.
