Dementia used to be a hopeless diagnosis. Not Today.
There are currently more than 747,000 Canadians living with Alzheimer’s disease—the most common form of dementia. While dementia is often considered separate from mental illness, the two are inextricably linked: as Alzheimer’s worsens, symptoms can include personality changes, depression, anxiety, and psychosis.
Today, CAMH researchers are finding ways to delay and reverse the progression of Alzheimer's and dementia. In preclinical trials, recent discoveries have been proven to not only rapidly improve memory symptoms, but to sustain this improvement with daily treatment.
