By Emilie Hackett, Special to The Record – Over 3,000 recorded residents in Estrie live with schizophrenia, a chronic mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. Symptoms include psychosis, loss of contact with reality, hallucinations, and many more. Marie-Claude Jacques, research professor at the University of Sherbrooke Nursing School and at the Institut universitaire de première ligne en santé et services sociaux (IUPLSSS), has created a guide to help people affected by this illness, entitled “Accompagner la personne vivant avec la schizophrénie” (Accompanying a person living with schizophrenia). Jacques has been working in the field of mental health for many years and wanted to make the experiential knowledge of her clients affected by schizophrenia accessible, and to promote further reflection on the best ways to accompany those people. See full story in the Wednesday, May 22 edition of The Record.
