Give a Gift of Light to a Patient Living with Mental Illness
Gifts of Light are practical, meaningful gifts that meet the unique needs of patients at CAMH. As Canada’s leading hospital for mental health, we know it’s not enough to just treat mental illness. Our patients also need connection, purpose and hope. Gifts of Light gives them that, so they can recover fully and thrive in the community. The program is a shining example of how a small kindness can brighten a day — and even transform a life.
Basic necessities, like a toothbrush and a pair of socks, mean everything to patients who arrive with nothing.
Some patients stay for just a few days, while others stay for much longer—no matter how long they’re here, it can be a challenging time for people in crisis. These items provide comfort, care and dignity during their time at CAMH — things like personal hygiene and warmth are vital to a patient’s well-being and quality of life. Patients can focus on their recovery, instead of worrying about purchasing these basic essentials on their own. Gifts of Light helps the community to rally behind our patients and reminds them that they are not alone in their journey toward recovery.
