The world is facing a global mental health crisis. CAMH is building a future where no one is left behind. Join us.

Mental health has always lagged behind other areas of medical research and care.

Lack of understanding, lack of advocacy, and lack of investment have fostered a culture of stigma, silence and shame. For the past quarter-century, CAMH has been a leader and beacon of hope for the growing mental health movement. Because here we stand together. We bring one another strength. We search for answers that don’t yet exist. And with the support of our community, we’re building a future where no one is left behind.

But we’re not there yet. There is more work to do and more people to help. As demand for mental health care surges, we are rising to meet the challenges of today and find the answers that will fuel progress for tomorrow.

With an ambitious $500-million goal, the No One Left Behind campaign is the final phase of a decades-long effort to change mental health care forever.

It’s about completing a vision that began 25 years ago to transform mental health care.


Since its establishment in 1998, CAMH has been on an epic journey of redevelopment, powered by philanthropy.


Creation of three new residential buildings to help prepare patients for life after CAMH and an outpatient clinic to promote ongoing recovery.


Completion of three new care buildings to support patients across the lifespan, from youth to seniors.


Opening of two new care buildings, which include 600,000 square feet of space and 235 inpatient beds, to improve patient care and outcomes.


Inspiring our community to help us build the CAMH Research & Discovery Centre and a future where no one is left behind.

Uniting 2/3 of CAMH’s more than 1,400 research staff in one location and potentially increasing the number of CAMH researchers, scientists, staff, students and trainees by 43%.

Enhancing CAMH’s ability to engage more patients and families into research in safe, dignified spaces, enriching the quality and outcomes of our work.

Integrating CAMH research, education and care, where new discoveries and innovations can be more seamlessly and rapidly evaluated and implemented into care pathways.

Attracting the world’s best scientific minds and the next generation of mental health leaders to CAMH to advance discovery into new treatments.

Equipping CAMH experts with cutting-edge infrastructure and the latest tools and technologies to better diagnose, treat and prevent mental illness.

“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 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.”

Read Augustina’s story

“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.”

Read Tyler’s story

“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.”

Read Erica’s Story

“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.”
