Schizy Inc

Schizy Inc is a disability led arts NFP collective based in Melbourne/on Wurundjeri. We are all creative people with living experience of diverse mental health and the public mental health system. We love the arts because they enable us to tell our stories, rebuild personal and social confidence, and advocate for better attitudes and practices around people with complex trauma. Schizy Inc is the only Own Voices agency for people with schizophrenia in Victoria, but we welcome all people who identify with mental health recovery and healing. Schizy Inc is directed by Heidi Everett.
