Exceptional quality in care, research, education, health promotion and policy development has won CAMH national and international
recognition. We are proud to have earned Canada’s highest level of hospital accreditation, and recognition as a World Health
Organization Collaborating Centre in mental health and addiction.
CAMH is home to more than 335 physicians, 2,737 staff, 750 volunteers and 400 students. This year, two outstanding CAMH professionals
received the Order of Canada: Dr. Mary Seeman, of the Schizophrenia Program, and Dr. Donald Meeks, a former educator at the
Addiction Research Foundation, were honoured for lifetime achievement and service to the country. We proudly acknowledge our
people as our most valued resource and the reason for our success.
A wide range of stakeholders attended the groundbreaking for Phase 1A of the historic redevelopment of our Queen Street site
