In order to ensure the ongoing safety of our patients and staff, please note that CAMH is maintaining the requirement for universal masking of staff, patients, visitors/essential care partners, contractors/vendors at CAMH. A hospital-approved mask will be required to enter into our buildings and in all common areas. Further, current screening stations and protocols are also being maintained and there will be no change in the requirement for anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or exposure risks to not enter the hospital.
A four-week support group is available for family members of those individuals experiencing a gambling problem. Individuals will be booked for an initial assessment in the Problem Gambling Service and then referred to the problem gambling support group for family members, which runs four times per year. Family members can access this group by contacting Access CAMH, or they can be referred internally when their family member is a client of the Problem Gambling and Technology Use Treatment Service.
There are individual counselling and support groups for parents and caregivers concerned about excessive gaming and internet use among young people aged 13–25. A limited number (up to six sessions) of individual counselling sessions is available for parents who are concerned about technology overuse by their young family member, as long as they agree to attend the eight-session parent group which runs three times per year. Family members and caregivers can access this group by contacting Access CAMH, or they can be referred internally when their young family member is a client of the Problem Gambling and Technology Use Treatment Service.
