1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness severe enough to affect their daily activities; the other 4 will be affected by the mental illness of someone close to them. 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.
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.
“I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology and two masters degrees — mental illness is only one part of my life, not my whole life. When you have a mental illness, it may seem like doom and gloom and it always seems like a long journey ahead of you, but this journey can be fruitful and have positive outcomes. I am a full advocate for the work that is being done here at Ontario Shores, as I have seen it in my own life. I live with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder and believe that the team here genuinely cares about what you are going through and your recovery journey.”
— Matthew, Ontario Shores patient
