It’s Schizophrenia Awareness Week from 15 to 21 May 2016. This provides an opportunity to raise community awareness of schizophrenia and mental illness in general.

During the week there’ll be a range of activities, information displays and events such as a parliamentary luncheon, symposium and mental health forum.

Schizophrenia is an illness that affects the normal functioning of the brain, interfering with a person’s ability to think, feel and act. Symptoms of what is called psychosis include confused thinking, delusions and hallucinations.
