Schizophrenia Society of Nova Scotia

A Reason to Hope.  The Means to Cope.


The Schizophrenia Society of Nova Scotia encourages research into cost-effective and evidence-based treatments for schizophrenia and psychosis.  Our immediate objective is to advocate for early detection and effective treatment, the best evidence-based treatment options, and recovery.  Our long-term goal is for approaches to prevent the onset of these brain disorders and to ultimately achieve a cure for all those who live with these illnesses.
