About Schizophrenia Society of Ontario:

Founded in 1979, the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO) works to make a positive difference in the lives of people, families and communities affected by schizophrenia and psychotic illnesses. Its ultimate vision is a society in which schizophrenia is recognized as a serious brain disease, excellence in service and treatment are the norm, stigma against schizophrenia is eliminated, and a cure is found.

To achieve this vision, SSO funds research, operates a range of support, education and awareness programs, and seeks to mobilize youth to take a greater role in understanding schizophrenia and championing SSO's cause. Since 1993, SSO has funded over 20 research projects and contributed nearly $2m to research on schizophrenia and psychotic illnesses. In F2014, 24% of program spending was for research. Programs include the Justice and Mental Health (JAMH) program that supports families of people with mental illnesses who have come in contact with the law, and a scholarship program for both individuals with, and children of people with schizophrenia or psychotic illness.

Financial Review:

In F2014, SSO's administrative costs were 21% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 38% of donations. SSO’s funding reserves amounted to $1.1m, of which $50k were donor-endowed funds. This funding reserve covers 72% of the annual program costs.
