Improving and saving lives affected by schizophrenia-related disorders, including bipolar
The purpose of the Delaware State Chapter of SARDAA is to support SARDAA’s initiatives and bettering lives impacted by psychosis. SARDAA is the leading international organization promoting a bold new agenda for lives affected by serious neurodevelopmental brain illnesses. The Delaware chapter will expand this outreach to families and diagnosed individuals in all three Counties in the state: Sussex, Kent, and New Castle. Our purpose is to promote hope and recovery through free support programs, education, collaboration, and advocacy. Our Vision is that every person living with a schizophrenia-related disorder receives respect, appropriate treatment, and an opportunity to live a meaningful and satisfying life in a compassionate community free of discrimination.
We sponsor face-to-face and conference call peer support groups for individuals diagnosed with a psychosis brain illness and their loved ones. SARDAA provides education for professionals, community organizations, diagnosed individuals, families, businesses, and educational institutions. Education promotes hope and recovery, eliminates discrimination and myths about schizophrenia-related brain illnesses, raises awareness so early diagnosis and treatment can increase the opportunity for recovery, and helps to make consumer-driven and recovery-oriented services fully accessible while eliminating the criminalization of people living with a brain illness.
