Corporate volunteerism:

  • encourages employees to use their skills and talents in rewarding ways
  • enhances the workplace’s teamwork, develops leadership skills, and boosts morale
  • improves a sense of loyalty and job satisfaction
  • promotes a sense of social commitment and responsibility.

Staying active and engaged is a way to maintain good mental health by alleviating stress and anxiety, building self-esteem and reinforcing personal relationships. Getting involved and volunteering promotes good mental health.

The CAMH Corporate Volunteer Program offers a variety of hands-on volunteer opportunities across a wide range of CAMH programs. Jim Davey, the program’s coordinator works hard to find activities that meet the needs of the hospital’s programs as well as those of the volunteers. “We try to find activities that match the values of the organization providing the volunteers,” says Jim.
