The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) recognizes the value of our activities and has provided some support. However, we are not part of CAMH.

You may not see these wonderful people when you come to our clubhouse but we guarantee you will see equally wonderful and brilliant artist, poets, musician, thinkers, painters, dancers, filmmakers, photographers, novelists, playwrights, etc.
These are some of the well known persons with schizophrenia who made an important contribution to society
