Breakthrough Campaign

CAMH launched the $200 million Breakthrough Campaign to transform mental health care in Canada and around the world.

Society is only at the early stages of understanding, treating and preventing the devastating impacts of mental illness and addiction. But there is enormous potential. At the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, we are on the cusp of being able to change not just one life, but millions around the world. And we are the place that will do it. We must create the facilities, invest in the research and educate the people who will make it happen.
