Campbell River and North Island Schizophrenia Society  

Campbell River Branch

We're here to help!

When a friend or family member is diagnosed with a mental illness, you may feel overhelmed, isolated and confused about what happens following the diagnosis. You may ask

  • Who can I talk to about this?
  • Where do I find information?
  • Where do I find help?
  • What programs and services are available?

We can help you find answers to these questions. You can drop into our office or phone or email us to talk to our staff and volunteers. We also have a free lending library, including books, brochures and videos.

We also offer Strengthening Families Together and the Nutritional Learning Program. Please see the Programs page for more information.
