Awareness Week 2014

Schizophrenia Awareness Week is an annual event held in May. It provides an opportunity to raise community awareness of schizophrenia and mental illness in general. We do this through a range of activities, including information displays and events across NSW, a Symposium, and media coverage.

We organise a range of activities for Schizophrenia Awareness Week designed to engage different sections of the community. These include our Annual Symposium and Annual Poetry & Photography Competition.
