With the support of HereToHelp, a partnership between mental health and addictions not-for-profits across BC, the BC Schizophrenia Society provides an interactive musical presentation designed to teach students and educators about psychosis. Endorsed by early psychosis clinicians, the presentation provides audiences facts about psychosis, challenges the stigma and myths surrounding psychosis, and highlights how to recognize and seek help for youth with emerging psychosis.
Since psychosis typically appears between the ages of 15 and 25, the show is geared towards secondary school students in grades 10-12, but can also be adapted for community events. There is no charge for secondary school presentations with at least 300 students.
ReachOut Psychosis performs throughout BC. For more information go to the ReachOut Website.
