Celebrating 25 years of CAMH

Leadership Team

A history of excellence

Sarah Downey, President & CEO, CAMH

A year of progress, partnerships and people

Stories of hope

At its heart, the No One Left Behind campaign is about people. We are grateful to the people who have graciously, courageously and authentically shared their lived experiences with mental illness. These messages of hope will inspire others and help us build a world where no one is left behind.

CAMH by the numbers


People are our purpose

Partnerships that drive change

This year, CAMH forged new partnerships and strengthened existing collaborations in order to transform the way we understand and treat mental illness.

Building a future where no one is left behind

The CAMH Research & Discovery Centre

We are building the world’s leading mental health research centre at CAMH. Once complete, the state-of-the-art facility will accelerate discovery into life-saving care for people with mental illness both in Canada and on a global scale. It is part of the final phase of what has been a 25-year journey of redevelopment and transformation—one that has been powered by the support of our community and will ignite research breakthroughs for decades to come.

As demand for mental health care surges globally, we need earlier diagnosis, tailored treatments, and strategies for prevention. That is what the CAMH Research & Discovery Centre will make possible by:

  • Creating 385,000 square feet of collaborative space where researchers, scientists, clinicians, patients and families come together to drive mental health forward.
  • Enhancing CAMH’s ability to engage more patients and families in research in safe, dignified spaces, enriching the quality and outcomes of our work.
  • Integrating CAMH research, education and care, where new discoveries and innovations can be more seamlessly and rapidly evaluated and implemented into care pathways.
  • Equipping CAMH experts with cutting-edge infrastructure and the latest tools and technologies to better diagnose, treat and prevent mental illness.

So much more than a building, the new CAMH Research & Discovery Centre was designed to unleash the potential of scientists and researchers and create a welcoming environment for patients, families and the community. This is where we will change mental health care forever.
