Over the last few months, British Columbians have been physically distancing and watching the pandemic unfold around the world. Some people have been following the news about COVID-19. While others are trying to maintain a daily routine as much as possible.

But BC Schizophrenia Society (BCSS) understands that caring for someone with schizophrenia and serious mental illness doesn’t end. In addition to worrying about these new measures, families are still needing support and education as they navigate through the system.

Because of this, BCSS staff has been working hard to adapt programs and services so that families and caregivers can still get the help they need. Programs and services that are helping families receive education, information, and support.

Some Regional Educators have taken the Strengthening Families Together courses online to ensure that families still get information and education. While others are using online and teleconferencing technology to continue their family support groups.

Through it all, be assured that BCSS Regional Educators will continue to provide one-on-one family education and support via phone and email. As BCSS continues to adapt its programs and services, this space will help keep families up-to-date on what is available in which regions.

If you are interested in getting connected to a group or course in your region, reach out and connect with a local Regional Educator by emailing info@bcss.org or calling 1-888-888-0029.
