Today is World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme is “Living with schizophrenia”. The World Health Organization estimates that at least 26 million people are living with schizophrenia. Nurse Joeanna Curry talks about the signs and symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options for someone with the illness, and discusses what friends and family can do to help.
Nurse Curry is also the Chairperson of the local World Mental Health Day Symposium going on today at New Life Christian Centre on Prince Charles Drives in New Providence, 8am to 4pm. She says the public is invited to get information, share their experiences and ask their questions about schizophrenia and other mental health issues.
