Schizophrenia Awareness Week
Posted on: Tue 22 May 2018
National Schizophrenia Awareness week runs from 21-27 May this year.
Its aim is to increase awareness and alter public perceptions about the illness, which the Mental Health Illness Fellowship of Australia warns is amongst the most stigmatised in the country.
CEO of the Fellowship, Tony Stevenson, joins Breakfast hosts Casey Tonkin and Sam Smith to provide an understanding of schizophrenia and encourage anyone suffering from the illness to seek help.
If you or someone you know needs mental health assistance phone the MiNetworks on 1800 985 944.
