Tour the Future of Mental Health

Welcome to CAMH’s newly redeveloped Queen Street virtual tour! This is an opportunity to witness the future of mental health care and reflect on what we’ve built together.

We’re proud of our new buildings, where people will find help and hope, today and tomorrow.

Our Deepest Gratitude

When our redevelopment vision was first ignited in 2005, we knew that it would take collaboration with true champions of mental health like you by our side, to make this a reality. Every phase in this redevelopment has included experts, staff, volunteers, and patients and their loved ones to ensure that we could deliver truly innovative patient care and research.

Our new buildings are a testament to what can happen when we work together. Thank you for all that you’ve done to make this moment possible—and for believing Mental Health is Health.

By the Numbers

Your generosity enabled CAMH to achieve a major milestone in its redevelopment with the completion of two state-of-the-art mental health care facilities. CAMH’s future will be filled with elevated patient care, research, and education in mental health—all because of you.

Virtual Tour of the New Queen Street Site

After a brief message from Dr. Catherine Zahn, CAMH’s President & CEO, we invite you to explore both the new McCain Complex Care & Recovery and Crisis & Critical Care buildings in a fully immersive virtual environment filled with videos explaining our new facilities.

Looking Ahead

As we completed this phase of the redevelopment, inpatient services from College Street and Queen Street relocated to the new buildings in late November 2020 and we opened to the public shortly afterward. But there is still more work to do. Today, we’re planning for what the future will look like—including integration of our research enterprise with a world leading mental health research centre and our clinical services, and changing the way the world sees, understands and responds to people facing suicide through our Not suicide. Not today. campaign.

We look forward to creating this future with you. Check out where we are going next—together.
