We’re working towards a future where no one is left behind. With your help, CAMH is already making that future a reality by providing life-altering treatment and support for those facing mental illness.
“I get to be in the room with scientists and researchers and tell them about my experiences. As a young person. As someone with lived experience of mental illness. As a Black woman.”
“I had tried everything and I had nothing left to live for, so I gave it a shot. I was so scared when I went, I was crying in the waiting room. Then someone came over to comfort me—another patient—and it created such a bond.”
“I get to come back to CAMH and give back to the people who have helped me. If I wasn’t in that program, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It’s all come full circle.”
“I have the mentality that, if you think I can’t do something, I’m going to prove you wrong. I’ve known since the beginning that I was going to make a name for myself.”
“As my life situation got worse, my mental health got worse and I became more suicidal. I kept getting kicked out of places because of my mental health issues, and everyone said my problems were beyond their scope. CAMH was the only place that would take me."
Every breakthrough has the power to change mental health care forever. The research discoveries happening at CAMH move us closer to a future where everyone gets the care they need.
