Nancy first heard about B. Schizophrenia Society when one of her family members was ill. She and her family were at a bit of a loss of how to best support and care for their loved one and BCSS provided her and her family a lifeline. She was able to see the difference that BCSS Regional Educators were able to make, to help families connect with resources and support. She vowed that one day, she too would give back and support other families facing similar experiences as her.

Once the initial crisis for her and her family was over, she joined BCSS as an educator and has been working with families for the past 10 years. Nancy tells us, ‘I feel it is an honour and a privilege to be able support families in their journeys and provide hope to them and to let them know they are not alone.’
