We are here to help anyone who lives with, or anyone who has a family member or friend living with a mental illness. Our programs help people work through all types of mental illnesses such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, personality disorders, or anxiety disorders.
The British Columbia Schizophrenia Society is a non-profit agency that was established in 1982 for the purpose of providing education and support for individuals with schizophrenia and their family members. The Kelowna branch maintains the original purpose of BCSS and has expanded services to include individuals and families suffering from all major mental illnesses.
BCSS Kelowna currently offers programs that support and educate both individuals with mental illness and their family members. We fight stigma through engaging and educating our community in dialogue about what mental illness is and how to help. We are happy to answer questions, offer support, and connect you to helpful, reliable resources.
