Our Mission

To improve the quality of life for those affected by schizophrenia and psychosis through education, support programs, public policy and research.


Who We Are

Schizophrenia Society of Alberta (SSA) supports individuals living with schizophrenia as well as their family and caregivers. Our goal is to provide access for our programs to all Albertans affected by schizophrenia.

Our branches located in Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Medicine Hat, Camrose, and Lethbridge offer services and programming in branch, over the phone, and online at no cost.

1 in 100 people will have some form of schizophrenia in their lifetime.

Schizophrenia is a common disorder, 10 times more common than AIDS, sudden infant death syndrome. and melanoma combined. Chances are, you've come across someone living with schizophrenia at some point in your life and not even known it. 

People living with schizophrenia can and do lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. With the right medical care and emotional and community supports, many find recovery.

SSA support programs reduce hospital visits, and our housing and support programs cost one quarter of the price of a day in hospital. As a not-for-profit, we rely on financial support from our community in order to sustain and grow these services.


We Provide


Our programs and services emphasize shared experience, the benefits of community, and the importance of self-care in reaching recovery.

All Programs & Services


Through supportive employment, we provide Albertans living with schizophrenia, safe and caring environments free of social stigma.

Supportive Employment


Schizophrenia is one of the most widely misunderstood disorders. We do our part to reduce the stigma and clear up misconceptions through community education.
