Letter to the Editor-Thursday, May 15: Schizophrenia help
I WRITE on behalf of the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia to ask your readers to become aware it is time we all took more action to support people who have schizophrenia.
It is Australia's last big un-discussable illness. The simple fact is that it is very misunderstood and affects up to one million Australians.
We want to make readers aware that there is an important free service that can support people in your area. The initiative is called "MiNetworks" and local people in your area will be referred to the information and services they need by simply calling 1800 985 944. Also go to minetworks.org.au.
Chief Executive Officer,
Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia.
