  1. I am interested in your Zoom Meeting 25 October 2021. My son of 25 years old was recently diagnosed with shizophrenia. What can Ii do to be part of this meeting, please? The more I learn, the more I and my family will be able to support my son, and ourselves!

  2. Hi, my name is Michelle and I have a schizophrenic partner, I would like to be able to join a support group as I am finding it more and more difficult to communicate with him, his delusions are centred on me and its taking its toll on my well being. How do I go about joining a support group and can he come along? I do not have access to zoom online and would prefer to be able to talk to other people in person. Any ad ice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

  3. I have been given your details by sadag. When will your next meeting be. And could I perhaps telephonically chat to someone or via whats app. I have a 22 year old son who has been diagnosed and need some help going forward.
