The CureSZ Foundation was founded in 2016 to bring hope to people suffering from schizophrenia and those who love and care for them.
CureSZ envisions a future where schizophrenia and related psychoses are widely accepted as neurobiological brain conditions, and can be prevented, treated or cured, with restoration of wellness and full functional recovery.
Too often, a schizophrenia diagnosis gives rise to despair and hopelessness. What is not widely known and what the CureSZ Foundation intends to promote is both knowledge and empowerment. Knowledge – which includes raising awareness about the latest cutting- edge biological and psychosocial treatments, and empowerment – in the sense of providing patients and their families and friends with tools and resources to improve their lives.
CureSZ creates educational materials that inform, encourage and inspire people with schizophrenia on their road to recovery. We also fund research into the causes, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of schizophrenia. The CureSZ Board of Trustees includes eight psychiatrists, two lawyers, a former patient and two family members with an interest in mental health.
