CAMH employee providing counselling for a patient

Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why CAMH / Centre for Addiction and Mental Health was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2016):

  • CAMH manages "Employment Works!", a unique program to help individuals with mental health or addiction access meaningful employment through skills development, including resume writing, cover letters, referrals and other educational resources -- also as part of the program, CAMH partners with TD Bank to organize education sessions on how clients can be competitive when applying for jobs at the bank and elsewhere
  • CAMH supports the "Out of This World Cafe" at three of its locations -- cafes are operated by Working for Change and provide employment opportunities for the psychiatric consumer/survivor community
  • CAMH maintains a health equity department, which works to create equal opportunities for good health and reduce differences in health among population groups -- the department recently produced CAMH's first health equity report on access and outcomes of services for ethnic and racial groups, and offers a University of Toronto accredited certificate program in diversity and health equity
