Rebecca White MP | Labor Member for Lyons
The week of May 11th was national Schizophrenia Awareness Week. Schizophrenia is one of the most stigmatised conditions in Australia and a much more common illness than many might think. There are around 230,000 Australians that have schizophrenia and millions of Australians are impacted by the condition. 60 per cent of people with schizophrenia experience negative and offensive attitudes from others towards them which I find very concerning.
