Toronto Is Opening New Walk-In Clinics For Mental Health
Stopping the stigma one step at a time.
Mental health care is something that isn't so easily accessible in Toronto. While some mental health services are available via online or phone, there aren't many direct services available to the public, and the small number that do exist are difficult to rely on since they are costly and often involve excruciatingly long wait lists.
Toronto's Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is making steps to change that. They will be opening three new walk-in clinics for mental health care throughout the city, particularly for the youth (ages 11 to 25).
The main goal of these mental health clinics is to give immediate care to mental health patients as opposed to delaying them with registration processes. Considering that one in five Canadians will have mental health issues yearly, with a large percentage of those individuals in their teen years, such clinics are almost necessitated in our city.
The clinics will be located at:
- Delisle Youth Services (Yonge and Eglinton)
- East Metro Youth Services (Scarborough)
- South East Toronto Family Health (Woodbine and Danforth)
