Recovery (Gifts of Light)

Our Gifts of Light patient experience program works with patients, families, and front-line clinical staff to identify the patient wellness gaps in our system, with the goal of improving the patient recovery experience. Today, when you support CAMH, you make our Gifts of Light program possible, and provide practical, meaningful gifts that meet the unique needs of patients at CAMH.

Basic necessities, like a toothbrush and a pair of socks, mean everything to patients who arrive with nothing.
Provide self-care for patients when they need it most.
Self-care begins with a healthy diet. Learning to prepare well-balanced meals is essential for overall well-being.
Many people living with mental illness are at a greater risk for serious dental issues. Proper and accessible care is not a luxury -- it's essential.
A backpack filled with essentials, such as deodorant, a water bottle and bus fare, makes the transition back into the community a little bit easier.
When patients are ready to leave CAMH, you can help them furnish their new home.
A gift of art materials, like sketchbooks and paints, help patients express their emotions and reduce stress.
Help our patients express themselves and build positive relationships through the wonder of music workshops.
Provide the tools for health and well-being.
Our caring and dedicated staff will hand-pick the perfect item for a patient--and unexpectedly brighten their day.
Support experiences that will empower patients to connect with their passions and discover new skills.
Help celebrate milestones in a patient's recovery as they successfully achieve personal goals to better well-being and health.
A good night's sleep is vital during recovery. A fresh set of pajamas will help a patient settle in and get the rest they need.
Spending time with animals can give patients a special moment. Share this joy with patients by supporting weekly remote visits from pet therapy volunteers and their skilled canine companions.
Books are vital to education, imagination, and knowledge about the world. They can deliver a moment of calm, help change perspective or illustrate new ideas.
For a patient in our care, something as simple as a shave or a haircut can restore confidence. An every day experience can mean so much.
Basic necessities, like a pair of socks, mean everything to patients who arrive with nothing.
