On Oct 2nd I began attending a program of study called Strengthening Families Together: Helping Canadians Live with Mental Illness. This is a free 10 session introductory workshop brought to us by the Schizophrenia Society of Canada. Their focus is on schizophrenia but they include other disorders such as bipolar, depression, anxiety, psychosis and OCD.
One of their main set of principles is “We recognize mental illnesses are brain disorders.” This means it’s not your fault, or that of you parents, that you are ill. To me this indicates we may be able to fix the body to fix the mind! If this is all I get out of this particular program it will have been well worth my time.
