Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - Province-Wide Action On Schizophrenia Campaign Concludes in Toronto



    "Let's Talk About It" Calling Upon Government to Improve Access to Key
    Treatments

    TORONTO, June 9 /CNW/ - "Let's Talk About It", a provincial campaign
organized by Schizophrenia Digest, will hold the fifth and final in a series
of province-wide community public forums in Toronto on June 10th at the Centre
for Addiction and Mental Health Centre.
    According to a Toronto based poll, 92 per cent of respondents agree the
cost of medications prescribed to someone with schizophrenia should be covered
by provincial health insurance plans. In Toronto, 60 per cent of residents
surveyed are willing to pay an extra $1 in taxes every year to ensure better
treatment for people with schizophrenia.
    Schizophrenia Digest publisher Bill MacPhee and keynote speaker
Dr. Ruth Baruch will address the real cost of this illness to society, the
effects of stigma, and the impact of advocacy. They will both be available for
comment.
