Our team tells Canadian Architect how we are taking down the walls around mental health care with our design for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto

With the world continuing to face the challenges of a pandemic, we are becoming more attuned to our own mental wellness and that of the people around us. As World Mental Health Day approaches on October 10, we recognize the increased importance of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health is Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world’s leading research centres in its field. CAMH combines clinical care, research, education, policy development and health promotion to help transform the lives of people affected by mental health and addiction issues. CAMH is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto and is a Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization Collaborating Centre.
