Recipient Profile

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

2018 Platinum Recipient
Mental Health at Work

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is Canada’s largest mental health teaching hospital and one of the world’s leading research centres in its field. CAMH advocates on public policy issues at all levels of government and recently launched its Mental Health is Health advocacy campaign on television and bus shelters across the Greater Toronto Area, as well as on social media. By focusing on the biggest gaps in our health care system – science, justice and advocacy – the ambitious campaign hopes to end the stigma surrounding mental health.

In January 2013, CAMH  became one of the  first hospitals  to  adopt  the  Mental Health Commission of Canada’s new National Standard  for  Psychological Health  and  Safety  in the  Workplace. This has led CAMH to create strategies and programs for staff, such as a Wellness Centre and an onsite Psychological Service.

As a high-performing organization dedicated to continuous quality improvement, CAMH is creating a world-class destination to learn and teach and a therapeutic environment for our patients to heal and recover.”
