Part 3 - In 2007, the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario produced the documentary, "Fear|Less: Opening Minds about Schizophrenia". This half hour program follows the life of Jesse, a young man who suffered his first psychotic break in his late teens. The documentary is meant to not only bring about awareness of schizophrenia, but offer hope to those who might be encountering this disease for the first time. For more info visit: www.ssoaware.com


"I had been diagnosed with schizophrenia when I learned that I was pregnant. When my mother told our neighbors that I was pregnant, they asked: ‘When is the abortion going to take place?’ That is stigma, a big stigma. My daughter is now six years old."
