What is Gifts of Light?

Gifts of Light are practical, meaningful gifts that meet the unique needs of mental health and addiction patients at CAMH. When you purchase Gifts of Light on behalf of your friends and family, you help people in crisis on their journey to recovery. Shop Gifts of Light.

Some CAMH patients stay for just a few days, while others stay for much longer — even years. They all need your help.

Many of our patients arrive with only the clothes on their backs. They may have no support from family or friends. Sometimes, they have no home to go back to.

That’s why we continue to ask for your help. Thank you.

A simple gesture from someone I didn’t even know, reminded me that I wasn’t alone.
