The Schizophrenia Society of Saskatchewan is a non-profit organization founded in 1982 by family members and friends of people living with schizophrenia. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of individuals living with schizophrenia, psychosis, and other related mental illnesses and their families.
We do this through:
- Personalized System and Resource Navigation
- Support programs for Individuals and Families
- Anti-Stigma Education

Our Your Recovery Journey with WRAP program helps people living with mental illness work on crisis plans and achieve high levels of wellness; our Family Recovery Journey program helps family members and care givers learn how to best support the people in their lives with mental illness; we use our Partnership Presentations to promote an anti-stigma mentality and provide education; we also offer peer support, a meet the resident psychiatrist program, and more!
