Schizophrenia Helpline: Schizophrenia Support

Schizophrenia is a severe long-term mental disorder that impacts the way a person feels, thinks, and acts. A schizophrenia diagnosis is terrifying for the person diagnosed and everyone else involved as well. Caring for a loved one with schizophrenia can be very challenging, but it is essential to know that there is help available.

ExtendaTouch is an entirely free schizophrenia support group where you will be able to connect with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges. At ExtendaTouch, you can learn how others have managed to care for their loved ones with schizophrenia and the struggles that it brings. Further, ExtendaTouch allows you to personalize the level of anonymity you would like to retain within the schizophrenia support group online, making members more comfortable sharing experiences and answering questions about their experiences.

How can ExtendaTouch help me?

The ExtendaTouch online support group consists of unpaid family caregivers across the entire U.S. ExtendaTouch provides online tools for its members to share information and support; perhaps even current news about:

  • Managing symptoms and side effects
  • Maintaining a healthy social life and relationships
  • Avoiding specific triggers
  • Finding the right therapy options
  • Schizophrenia caregiver support

You can feel safe expressing yourself or reading about your most pressing questions about schizophrenia. ExtendaTouch is anonymous and secure to assist you in meeting other family caregivers to find information and support. ExtendaTouch doesn't provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
