Mental Health Care at St. Joseph’s Health Centre

St. Joe’s is known for its expertise and compassion in caring for people with mental illness. Our west-end community has the highest concentration of people with mental illness and our Emergency department receives the highest volume of mental health and addictions patients in central Toronto.

The current Mental Health Emergency Services Unit (MHESU) lacks privacy and the comfort needed to help a person in distress. In fact, our busy unit can worsen panic, stress and fear. Past patients give glowing reviews of our care, but for many, the space itself is unnerving. We’re concerned that people needing help will avoid coming to St. Joe’s because the environment is so offputting.
