Programs and Services Speakers Bureau

Speakers Bureau 

The Schizophrenia Society of Ontario is committed to raising awareness about mental illness. Our Speakers Bureau program features speakers who are available to talk from their personal, lived experiences with mental illnesses. Raising awareness and sharing stories about mental illness helps us with our goal of making a positive difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities impacted by schizophrenia and psychosis.

If your organization needs a presenter to speak about their experience of living with a mental illness, or about being a family member/caregiver of an individual living with mental illness, please download and complete the Request a Speaker – Submission Form and send to Amanda White, Communications Officer at
