Dr. Aislynn Torfason knows there are gaps in the mental health care system. She experienced them in her early years, as a Métis woman growing up in the remote community of Churchill, Manitoba (“Polar bear capital of the world, kind of our claim to fame,” says Dr. Torfason). She witnessed these gaps during her medical education, attending the Northern Ontario School of Medicine in Thunder Bay. And she sees them every day in her multidisciplinary role as a clinician educator at CAMH, helping people in crisis in the Gerald Sheff & Shanitha Kachan Emergency Department.
