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

Dear Friend of CAMH:

Holiday giving in November? It may seem early, but we’ve got to get a head-start on our shopping. Here’s how you can help:

Launching online this week is our fourth annual Gifts of Light e-store with practical, meaningful gifts for those in treatment at CAMH over the holidays. Whatever gifts you choose, your generosity sends a strong message of hope when people need it most.

Patients realize there are people in this world – caring people like you – who haven’t forgotten about them. Help them feel special with a holiday gift that shows how much you care. You can share this with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers too!

We – and 1,000 CAMH patients – will feel the warmth of giving this season, thanks to you:

People with a family history of suicide are more than twice as likely to take their own life as those without such a history. CAMH scientists have now discovered a genetic risk factor for suicidal behaviour.
