To refer yourself for addictions services
For the majority of mental health services at CAMH, patients require a referral form to be completed by a physician or nurse practitioner. Clearly indicating the reason for your referral—and attaching any relevant materials as listed in the instructions—will help Access CAMH process your request. The completed form should be faxed to 416 979-6815.
For addiction services, patients can refer directly by calling Access CAMH. Family members and friends may also contact this number if they are concerned about a loved one’s mental health or substance use.
We answer your calls Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The line is closed weekends and statutory holidays. Interpreters are available to assist callers in their language of choice.
For emergencies anytime, call 911 or visit your local hospital emergency department. Access CAMH does not provide crisis counselling over the phone. Please visit our Crisis Resources page for a list of resources available for areas in and around Toronto.
