CAMH's Day Treatment Service is a group-based service that provides an inter professional team approach for people who require time-limited group therapy and transitional care.
Part of Mood and Anxiety Ambulatory Services
This service utilizes the group milieu as the primary therapeutic intervention and is intended to supplement and not replace ongoing clinical care such as individual psychotherapy, extensive case management, housing support, or other specialized services. This program offers three streams of group therapy based on best practices for individuals with mood and anxiety diagnoses to include skill building, CBT approaches, psychoeducation, interpersonal effectiveness and recovery strategies. Clients using this service collaborate with program staff to set realistic goals and to determine which group (s) will best suit their needs.
We promote recovery, independence, and hope, in a respectful, mutually responsible and collaborative treatment environment.
What does this service offer?
We are committed to providing client-centered, holistic, and culturally competent care that includes:
- Time Limited Group and individual therapy
- Referral and linkage to community services

Who can be referred?
We support adults who are experiencing mood and/or anxiety disorders. Clients must have a family doctor or psychiatrist in the community. Clients also must be willing to commit to the program and demonstrate an interest and ability to participate in a group setting.
Referral Required: Yes, from a Family Doctor or Psychiatrist. If the referral is completed by a GP the Psychiatrist needs to be aware. The completed referral should be faxed along with any pertinent information, i.e., psychiatric reports, lab work, to ACCESS CAMH fax line: 416-979-6815. The referral will be reviewed by ACCESS CAMH Intake Co-ordinators and this may also include a brief telephone screening, or request for more information from the referring physician.
