The Canadian Network for Research in Schizophrenia and Psychoses, aims to offer the structure for the coordination of schizophrenia research nationally, with the following Vision:
Recovery is possible for people with schizophrenia and psychosis,
Our Mission is:
To raise awareness that continued research in schizophrenia and psychotic disorders is needed and greatly contributes to improving the recovery and quality of lives of people affected (individuals and their families), with a resulting decrease in health and social costs related to these disorders.
To improve the impact of Canadian schizophrenia research by fostering interdisciplinary collaborative efforts and creating momentum to generate resources needed to answer current gaps and needs as determined by multiple stakeholders including researchers, clinicians, families, and people with lived experience.
To acknowledge the importance, and further expansion, of policy development and knowledge translation, integral to Canadian research efforts in schizophrenia and psychosis.
