Three of our programs are available in an online format. We deliver these programs using Cisco Webex through E-Health (SHA).
The Partnership Program is a stigma busting initiative built around our one-hour, anti-stigma, public awareness presentations.
We share stories of recovery from schizophrenia and related mental illness with the public while informing them on how to find and use treatment and services. The goals of a presentation are: to promote recovery from schizophrenia and related mental illnesses, reduce the stigma and misconceptions associated with mental health disorders, and share resources so people know where and how to get help.
The Partnership Program puts a positive face of recovery at the forefront of mental illness by dispelling the myths and fears the general public has. We present to a wide variety of groups such as:
- High Schools and Youth Organizations
- RCMP and Police Services
- Universities and Colleges
- First Nations and Indigenous Groups
- Drug and Alcohol Detox Centers
- Faith Groups
Family Recovery Journey
Family Recovery Journey (previously called Strengthening Families Together) was created by the SSC with the goal to provide knowledge, support, and tools necessary for families and loved ones of those living with mental illness such as schizophrenia, psychosis related, and mood disorders.
It is a 5-session course that meets once a week for 2 hours. The groups may be held in person or online.
The following topics will be covered:
- Overview of Psychosis and Schizophrenia
- Living with Psychosis and Schizophrenia
- Managing Crises
- Lived Experience and Recovery
- Building Strengths and Going Forward
Your Recovery Journey
Your Recovery Journey is a course based on the premise that there is hope, that people with mental illness can get well and stay well for long periods of time, and do the things they want to do with their lives.
It is a 5-session course that meets once a week. The overall goal of the program is to increase participants' ability to meet their personal recovery goals by enhancing their self-determination and quality of life. We accomplish this by covering the following topics:
- providing an opportunity for participants to explore the many aspects of recovery
- exploring the role of personal goals in the recovery journey
- giving participants the knowledge and tools they need to be active participants in managing their illness and recovery
- modelling hope and recovery by using a peer-support approach
- providing an opportunity for participants to reflect on and plan for their recovery journey
Your Recovery Journey is important for several reasons. It builds on the well-established literature and evidence base for recovery from mental illness, and it also contributes to the growing number of programs that focus on empowering people to manage their own treatment and recovery journey.
