As of August 5th, 2022, an outbreak has been declared in CAMH’s Emergency Department, located at 1051 Queen Street West due to staff positive COVID-19 cases. This declaration was made in conjunction with Toronto Public Health, CAMH’s Health, Safety and Wellness (HSW), and Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC). The Emergency Department remains open to new patients. However, please advised that wait times might be longer than usual given staffing issues. CAMH has completed contact tracing for all impacted staff and confirmed that no patients have been exposed.
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.
Fuel discovery. Save lives.
Your donation will fund the groundbreaking mental health research that is helping people on the path to recovery.
