As well, the SSC is a member of the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health which is a non-profit organization comprised of mental health care providers as well as organizations which represent individuals with lived experience of mental illness and their families. “A fundamental objective of CAMIMH is to engage Canadians in a national conversation about mental illness. By starting this conversation, CAMIMH hopes to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and provide insight into the services and support available to those living with mental illness.”

SSC also plays a significant role in joint advocacy with the following pan-Canadian organizations.

Mental Health Commission of Canada
Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addictions

Because 3 percent of the population will experience psychosis, early intervention is paramount. The SSC enjoys a working relationship with the Canadian Consortium for Early Intervention in Psychosis.


Your mental illness does not define you. Your strength and courage does.
