Historia administrativa

The Canadian Schizophrenia Foundation was a national, non-profit, charitable organization incorporated on December 18, 1968. The first executive included Dr. Abram Hoffer (president), Irwin J. Kahan (director), and Donald C. (Ben) Webster (treasurer). The Foundation's head office was located in Regina, Saskatchewan until 1986, when it was moved to Burnaby, British Columbia (1986 to 1992), and later North York, Ontario (1992-2003). The foundation had branches in cities across the country, including Regina and Saskatoon.

The Canadian Schizophrenia Foundation was dedicated to research and public awareness of schizophrenia diagnosis, treatments and prevention methods. The Foundation included professionals, schizophrenics and their families, and others interested in mental health issues. The Foundation held annual conferences and public meetings, issued publications and distributed information packages. Most of the Foundation's funding came from memberships, subscriptions, donations and the sale of publications.

In 1972, the Foundation began publishing a quarterly journal, The Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry, which featured articles by physicians, psychiatrists and scientists concerning the megavitamin treatment of mental illness. In 1973, the name of the journal was changed to The Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine to include psychiatric and preventive medicine. The Foundation also published a quarterly newsletter that included case histories, editorials, book reviews and articles relating to orthomolecular health.

On January 13, 2003, the Canadian Schizophrenia Foundation became the International Schizophrenia Foundation.
