TORONTO, February 16, 2017 - CAMH is commemorating Canada’s 150th birthday by
asking governments and Canadians to make 2017 The Year For Mental Health.
On Monday February 13th, Dr. Catherine Zahn
addressed a sold out room at the Spoke Club in Toronto and urged attendees to
join CAMH in capturing #Canada150 for this important cause.

In conversation with CBC Ideas Host Paul Kennedy, Catherine reflected on the progress made to end
stigma and to encourage people to seek treatment, but cautioned that the momentum must
continue to ensure that people with mental illness receive equal access to
Dr. Catherine Zahn and CBC Radio One host, Paul Kennedy.
CAMH is celebrating #Canada150 through the ‘150 Leading Canadians for Mental Health’ initiative, co-chaired by Sandi and Jim
Treliving. A national selection committee will invite Canadians from all walks
of life to nominate someone who is making a difference for mental health. Stay

committee, and the nomination process.
