CAMH works within the community
CAMH brings together information developed by experts that is designed to meet the needs of people working within the mental health treatment system, including primary care. Here you will find more specialized information and guidance as together we expand capacity to meet the needs of people with intellectual disabilities, to meet the specific needs of immigrants and refugees, and other high-needs groups. Meeting the needs of marginalized and often under-served people is core to the values of CAMH and to our colleagues working across health systems.
