Appeal Letter

Your Tax Deductible donation will:

  • Support programs for the almost 9 million Americans living with schizophrenia-related brain disorders and their loved ones.
  • Educate professionals, consumers, policy makers and the public.
  • Eliminate stigma and foster early treatment – vital in making a drastic difference in lives affected by schizophrenia-related disorders.

Like the family below, SARDAA supports countless individuals and families during challenging situations.

My name is Robbie.  “I remember my eldest brother, Lance, normal, cool, and athletic; I always saw him surrounded by friends. Extremely popular and the star of the basketball team, he was my idol.  My “idol” was also the reason for a 911 call.

Lance treated me well. At first we didn’t realize that Lance had a major brain disorder that would later lead to a diagnosis of schizophrenia, but I could tell that the person I looked up to the most in the world was entering his own orbit.  My lasting image of Lance, after seeing him shipped from rehab to rehab facility, is of him in a hospital walking around, talking to himself as if there were no one else in the world.”   

“My son, Lance, is very happy in his new group home. I could not have survived these last three months of crisis without my friends from Family and Friends Support (FFS).  I appreciate those who choose not to speak, but just listen. I feel your presence and am so grateful.

Hi, I am Susan, wife, mother of four, including Lance, professional, SARDAA volunteer and DONOR.  Please JOIN ME and DONATE to this incredible organization that provides reliable resources and programs vitally important to millions of Americans.  There are so many out there who need support…..let them know they are NOT ALONE!”


The following quote best epitomizes friends found in FFS, others have found in Schizophrenics Anonymous, and our charitable contributors:


“Friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.” ~Anonymous~


Your donations have helped this family and countless others with their challenges.  Thanks, and we look forward to continuing to assist others in the future.
