CAMH Stories Centre for Addiction
and Mental Health

Toronto Star Showcases CAMH

This Saturday, June 7, CAMH will be featured in a special section of the Toronto Star.

Over the past four weeks, the Star has gone behind the scenes at CAMH to see how the work we do transforms the lives of those affected by mental illness and addiction.

Echoing the CAMH Foundation’s new Breakthrough Campaign, the stories featured in the special section will highlight how we are working toward the big goals: helping more people recover faster; inspiring hope through discovery; and stopping mental illness from destroying lives.

We know that 70 per cent of mental illness develops in childhood and adolescence. If we can connect children with the necessary supports early on, we are better poised to reduce the burden of mental illness over the lifetime. We also know that families are crucial support networks, and that treating the whole family improves recovery and builds resilience. The important work of CAMH’s Child, Youth and Family outpatient services will be explored through the experience of a mother and daughter now on the road to recovery. 

For the first time, CAMH is sharing exciting details about the next phase of the CAMH Redevelopment, Phase 1C, with the media. In this phase, we are taking a major step forward toward realizing our vision for a new kind of hospital, fully integrated with the community, specially designed to support recovery and advance mental health. In this phase, we are creating two new state-of-the-art hospital buildings that will promote an integrated approach to clinical care, education, research and innovation. The section will reveal illustrations of the new buildings and the Queen West Street front.  

Readers will also get an inside look at the revitalized CAMH emergency department and promising innovations in research and clinical care across the life span.

These and many more inspiring CAMH stories will be featured in the Toronto Star this weekend, so pick up a copy and let us know what you think!
