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.
Give monthly and become a Change Agent for mental health today.
Monthly donors enable CAMH to work toward a world where mental health is health. A world where mental health treatments are more effective, where care is more accessible and where suicide prevention is a public health priority.
One in five Canadians experience mental illness in any given year. That means someone you know is affected—a friend, a colleague or a family member.
At its most serious, mental illness can be fatal. An average of 11 Canadians lose their lives to suicide every day, while many more struggle with suicidal thoughts. At CAMH, we are working toward a world where no one has to lose their life or a loved one to this tragic outcome—but we can’t get there without your help.

Hear from our valued Change Agent donors
I was approached by someone from the CAMH face-to-face team to start donating in 2017, and learned about how they are able to help people living with mental illness who are struggling or in crisis. I've been donating monthly since then, because I want CAMH to always be there to help someone who needs it. I'm proud to support CAMH with my monthly donation.
I became a CAMH monthly donor because I have first hand experience about how amazing CAMH is and the need for more financial support. CAMH staff are the most compassionate and most knowledgeable people when it comes to caring for people with mental illness, including addiction. They are the leading hospital for mental health, trying to have early intervention to help our youth go on to lead healthy and happy lives. I’m happy to say my child will be one of those people. If we all give what we can each month, I know it will go to a very worthy cause and help so many.
I have seen mental health challenges in all four of my children, but it's my youngest who has suffered the most from it. I started to donate to CAMH monthly because I appreciate the outreach that they are doing, as I truly believe that the more we talk about mental health, the better informed we are, the better off the next generations will be.
As Canada’s largest mental health teaching hospital and a world-leading research centre in its field, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health sets the standards for care, research, education and leading social change. With a dedicated staff of more than 3,000 physicians, clinicians, researchers, educators and support staff, CAMH offers outstanding clinical care to more than 37,000 patients each year.
You can support the highest priority needs of the hospital by joining our growing group of CAMH Change Agents by making a monthly donation today.
Why monthly giving is the best way to support CAMH
Mental health research is saving lives today.
Monthly donors inspire hope by accelerating discovery at CAMH, increasing the scope and scale of our investigations and shortening the path from breakthroughs to care.
Building the Mental Health Facility of the Future
Change Agents build the dignified spaces at CAMH that promote recovery and break down the stigma of mental illness to promote healing. CAMH is in the midst of its biggest transformation to date, having opened two new buildings for care in 2021–The McCain Centre for Complex Care and Recovery and the CAMH Crisis and Critical Care Building.
From research-informed educational resources for the public to large scale awareness campaigns encouraging Canadians to learn and talk about the most difficult issues surrounding mental health, monthly donors support CAMH in our mission to change how people understand and treat mental illness in Canada and around the world.
