Every year , May 24th is observed as ‘Schizophrenia Awareness Day’. Even though the disease has a history of around 300 years, the awareness about it is very minimal. Especially in the developing world the symptoms of this disease are attributed to, spirits, black magic etc.
So, every year on 24th May, an active effort is made to create awareness about Schizophrenia by involving the society. Many support groups are also formed in order to help the care givers.
Let’s stamp out stigma!!
