Face-to-Face with Sandra Yuen Mackay

- A Vancouver woman who has schizoaffective disorder is profiled in a video produced for Mental Illness Awareness Week Canada 2012 (September 30 – October 6).

Sandra Yuen Mackay is an artist and author chosen as one of the campaign’s Faces of Mental Illness 2012. She wrote a memoir (“My Schizophrenic Life“) about living with the disorder, and she shares tips on how she has learned to cope, including using the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP).

Now thriving, she encourages people to seek help, and says there are many types of help available in the community.

A cheerful message to start this week of awareness.
