Patients First

The Centre For Addiction And Mental Health's PMO Gives Staff The Power To Provide Better Care

Just as with physical problems, mental health issues can't be left to heal on their own. Yet many people are hesitant to seek professional help. Only 1 in 3 Canadians who experience mental health challenges in any given year seek treatment, according to the Mental Health Commission of Canada. This is due, in part, to long wait times in the country's publicly funded healthcare system. In the province of Ontario, wait times of at least six months are common for mental health patients. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) wants to change this.
