The World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders (WFSAD) is the only global grassroots organization dedicated to lightening the burden of schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses for sufferers and their families.
We are pleased to announce that the World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders (WFSAD) has now merged with the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH). This site will remain active for the forseeable future, serving English, Spanish and French speakers. We hope you will continue to visit the site and to contact us when necessary.
A vehicle for WFSAD's established programs will be the WFMH Center for Family and Consumer Advocacy and Support. This Center will represent consumer and family interests. We hope that as it develops it will become a powerful symbol to inspire caregivers and consumers around the world. Please visit this Center regularly as we build the site for the use of consumers and families.
At present (2011) the guidebook Mental Illness and Suicide a Family Guide to Facing and Reducing the Risk is available to download from the WFMH site.
It is hoped that WFSAD programs such as the Reason to Hope family education tool and Families as Partners in Mental Health Care guide for professionals will become avalable on the WFMH site during 2012.
