CAMH satellite facility important in creating a healing space for patients
When The Archway Outpatient Clinic gets a makeover, courtesy of the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO), it will be about more then new paint and flooring. It will be creating a healing space that reminds the clients they are important, said Joan Loughran, a recreation therapist at the clinic.
Archway, at 1451 Queen St. W. in Parkdale, is an outpatient clinic of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). The about 20 staff and doctors there serve people with complex mental illness who would have at one time been treated as an inpatient. Archway helps to give these patients the skills to live happy, healthy lives in the community. Click here to read the rest of the article
