About

The Schizophrenia Society Nova Scotia, (SSNS) was established in 1982 to support individuals living with Schizophrenia and their families/friends.

The Mission

To make a positive difference in the lives of people, families and communities in Nova Scotia affected by Schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar and all related mental illnesses.

SSNS provides a continuum of programs and services for people living with a mental illness and their family/friends. These programs promote and support wellness. “Living Well in Community”, is about providing the necessary supports to individuals with lived experience, which enable them to experience recovery and to live a full life as part of the community.

Participants develop skills and knowledge about how to access supports empowering them to live in community and to develop the ability to recognize when added supports are needed to remain in community.
