Red Deer Advocate - 5/25/2018

For their first awareness walk, the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta had sizeable group of Red Deerians out for a stroll downtown.

About 50 to 70 people walked around downtown on Thursday carrying signs in support of the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta. They departed from the organization's downtown Red Deer office just around lunch time as one of six cities in Alberta taking part in the event.

Rubyann Rice, Schizophrenia Society of Alberta provincial executive director, took part in Red Deer's walk, saying it was mostly about addressing the stigma associated with the mental disorder.
