Everyone Needs To Be Involved, To Make a Difference!

Meet Philip... this is why we do it!


I love to canvass each year for Open Minds Walk and Run. I want mental health to matter! It can affect all walks of life. You are not alone! The Open Minds Walk and Run creates awareness. The Schizophrenia Society of Alberta helps to increase understanding, reduce stigma, provide education, hold special events, and assists with social connections. Personally, I went from hearing voices and experiencing hallucinations, being unhygienic and a high risk car driver to very minimal hallucinations and voices to being active in the community, caring for myself, taking public transit, and being a gentleman. Going to the peer support group is fun and the Partnership Education Program gives me the opportunity to tell my story to many groups of people in the community.



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