We are making a difference

We are pleased to share another client journey and their experience with SSA.

"The opportunity to move to the Lovella building has been a true blessing for me! I like Red Deer and wanted to have the independence of my own apartment. Before moving to Lovella I lived with my parents, in a smaller community with less resources and services. I have had no emergency visits to the hospital in the time I have lived at Lovella and I feel I am well on my way within my recovery. Living in an environment that understands has helped me to have continued stability. The drop-in center has proven to be an important place to me, allowing me to meet and connect with people living with the same life challenges. I have seen many positive changes while living at Lovella and made many new friends in which I hold dear. Living at the Lovella has given me a second chance to start over my life; people need a place to call home throughout the cycles of recovery from mental illness. Lovella has helped me to achieve independence though a supportive environment, new friends and connections, and has helped me to be happy with life. Please consider donating to the Schizophrenia Society as well as the Lovella building as it provides people with the needed support to have a second chance in life! Sincerely, S.W."

"Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for those affected by schizophrenia and psychosis through education, support programs, public policy and research."
