CAMH's family initiative recognizes that family members, independent of their positive or negative impact on their family
member, deserve care and support from CAMH. The following are outcomes, created by family members and staff, that all clinical
programs are striving towards.
There is an overarching program philosophy that informs how program staff interact with families. This philosophy includes
family involvement in client care, professional services for families, and families helping families.
Staff demonstrate their family philosophy, attitudes, and values through action.
Staff evaluate the outcome and impact of the following:
- the range and adequacy of professional services offered to families,
- family involvement in client care,
- connecting families to peer supports.
