Schizophrenia Alliance Guiding Principles

  • The only requirement for SA membership is the desire to recover from a schizophrenia related illness.
  • There are no dues for SA membership, although donations may be accepted to cover SA group expenses or special events.
  • Everything said at SA meetings is confidential.
  • SA members should remain anonymous, except those who wish to work on special issues; SA members and leaders should place principles before personalities in all matters relating to our program.
  • Each group may establish its own meeting format, subject to approval by central SA leadership.
  • Decisions affecting SA as a whole are derived from the group consciousness of its own members; we rely on our Higher Power to work through this process.
