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.
