96% of those living with schizophrenia report that they have experienced discrimination due to their illness. Discrimination in finding employment, finding housing and other aspects of daily living! This discrimination is clearly portrayed in an article published in the Globe and Mail by one of our long standing members, Amy Willans. SSA is very proud to highlight Amy and her article in our 2018 Annual Campaign “See Me, Not My Illness” Amy’s article can be found here:
I'm not crazy, I'm not dangerous, I just need your understanding - The Globe and Mail
Please help SSA reach our campaign goal of $150,000.00 so we can continue providing support to those living with schizophrenia, who like Amy, find themselves coping with the isolating effect of discrimination in their daily lives.
