SAA- Fulfilment of a Visionary’s Dream

Dr Jagannath Wani, a Canada based NRI and a caregiver of a family member suffering from schizophrenia, was instrumental in formation of a caregivers’ organisation, the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta (SSA), in the Province of Alberta in Canada in 1980. Encouraged by the effective work of SSA for persons suffering from Schizophrenia and their families, Dr Wani wanted to form a similar body in Maharashtra, the state of his birth in India, where the need to provide such help was much more pronounced.
