In addition to providing the best care possible, CAMH also strives to ensure that inpatients and outpatients have access to all the supports that they need to recover.
CAMH has established a number of programs to promote patient wellness that are run in partnership between staff, volunteers and donors.
Suits Me Fine
The Suits Me Fine boutique, located at our Queen Street campus, provides clothing that patients may not otherwise have access to. The selection of clothing and accessories in the boutique are donated new or gently used, and among other things, includes professional and formal attire for significant milestones in a patient’s life, such as job interviews, court appearances and special events.
This program helps CAMH’s frontline staff supply patients with basic needs items such as toiletries, as well as connects them with meaningful experiences and activities that can help in their recovery, such as art and music therapy. This program is supported through the generosity of our donors.
This program brings canine companionship and support to patients. All the dogs and their humans are volunteers and visit on a weekly basis to help patients experience the therapeutic benefits of pet therapy.
Join the Sunrise Challenge
The Sunrise Challenge presented by Sun Life invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for 5 days (May 30 to June 3) while raising vital funds for CAMH. By rising together and rallying our friends, family, and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.
