I've lived in the Queen Street West neighbourhood for about 6 years now.
I have passed by the CAMH campus on an almost daily basis as I've commuted to work, gone for my runs, or casually walked past with family and friends.
I've seen them take down the walls that used to gate this facility, and I've seen the significant expansion and modernization of this facility throughout my time here. I believe this work has helped its residents integrate with the community and therefore help remove the stigma around mental health and addiction.
"You've Changed" has always served as a reminder of the progress CAMH has made, the progress that people within the facility have made, and it serves as a reminder to anyone who comes upon this sign, of the progress they've personally made in their own regard.
I will be running a Full virtual Marathon (42.2kms) to help raise money for this amazing organization, for everything that they do, and for all the amazing people that they help.
Please donate if you can!
Love and appreciate you all,
