The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is one of the most significant mental health teaching hospitals in the world. It provides exceptional care to more than 34,000 patients and responds to 500,000 outpatient visits each year.
Through its affiliation with the University of Toronto, CAMH is one of the largest training facilities in the world for psychiatrists and allied mental health professionals. CAMH inspires change in the mental health field through the professionals it trains, the knowledge it shares and in the modern facilities it is building: embedded in the community and open to the world.
Education is one of the most powerful tools to tackle issues of stigma and inequity that devastate people, their families and communities. Learning and awareness foster understanding, compassion and tolerance. CAMH has achieved tremendous progress in erasing the misconceptions associated with mental illness, but we still have a long way to go. Power Corporation is glad to support CAMH and its mission to drive the mental health movement forward and create a world where Mental Health is Health.
