Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health raises funds to support programs and services at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores) that assist those in their journey to recovery from mental illness. By donating to our Hope Fund you are supporting our priorities which include:
The journey to recovery from mental illness is one that is shared by patients, family, friends, caregivers, community members, and donors. Please join us on this journey and help us build a foundation of hope for those living with mental illness.
“It's not just one person involved when someone in the family has a mental illness it's a whole family. And ultimately society at large is involved just as much. Mental illness is no less important than any other physical illness and it needs the same kind of attention. In a way I feel like Ontario Shores saved us and that makes me want to give back.”
— Steve, father of two young adults who have mental illness, member of the Ontario Shores Family Council.
