OUR VALUES

  • Schizophrenia and psychosis are caused by a number of different factors; from multiple genetic or environmental factors or from a combination of both.
  • The SSC fully supports the important role of research in all areas related to schizophrenia and psychosis (biological, psychological, spiritual, and social determinants of health)
  • Persons with schizophrenia and psychosis are entitled to efficient multi-disciplinary and integrated evidence-informed treatment and community support services.
  • Persons at the early phases of their illness are entitled to real secondary prevention (early intervention and treatment) through specialized first episode psychosis clinics and their collaborators.
  • Persons with schizophrenia and psychosis are to be included as full citizens in accessing education, employment, housing, medical services, recreation and social supports.
  • Whenever possible families are essential partners in the care and the treatment and recovery plans of persons with schizophrenia and psychosis, and deserve respect and support
  • Persons with schizophrenia and psychosis must be included in their treatment planning, care and recovery plans.
