The Latest from CAMH Foundation - October 2011 E-News
Centre for Addition and Mental Health

Friends of CAMH,

As supporters of CAMH, you’re already ahead of the curve. You’ve had the courage and conviction to support mental health in the face of continued stigma and many other competing demands.

But did you know there are 25,000 of you out there? That’s how many donors contributed to our $108 million Transforming Lives Campaign - what an incredible show of support!

We celebrated – and thanked our tireless Campaign co-chairs Jamie Anderson, Michael McCain and Tom Milroy – with GameChangers, an evening of sharing that offered an interactive look at some of the ways CAMH is helping to understand the brain and harness its amazing potential.

Every one of you is a game changer, and for that we offer a huge thank you!
