Walking on the foot steps of the 1st International Conference on Schizophrenia (IConS I), Schizophrenia Research Foundation (SCARF) organized the 2nd International Conference on Schizophrenia (IConS II) on October 13-15, 2006 Chennai, India. It was really an outstanding conference and for me to attend this, was indeed a stimulating experience. But before looking at the conference itself, I will like to introduce SCARF.

SCARF’S Awareness materials: SCARF has developed awareness and educational material for the families in the form of booklets, “Facts for the Family” on Crisis Management and medication and a film on the same topic called “FACES”. It has also worked to create awareness among the health workers and School teachers.
