Schizophrenia Awareness Week 2015
SAW 2015 17 - 23 May
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.
We prepare Information Kits for Schizophrenia Awareness Week containing posters and brochures for display in libraries, health centres, neighbourhood centres, GP offices and other venues where people will see them and learn a bit about schizophrenia. These are posted out in April.
