CAMH Difference Makers Action Report

  1. Practice active listening: Have a one-hour conversation with someone today about mental health.
  2. Share recovery stories: Show people the way out; recognize the value of support from peers at a different place in their journey.
  3. Collaborate: Between community and institutional care, across sectors, between administrators and students, managers and employees, etc.
  4. Support mental fitness: What are my mental health equivalents to five fruits and vegetables each day?
  5. Keep talking: Until we all get comfortable with the discomfort.
