Mental Illness Awareness Campaign

Mental Illness can stop you from reaching your full potential, but it does not have to. Ontario Shores has launched a new awareness campaign sharing the successes of our patients. You may have already seen "My mental illness didn't stop me" on local billboards, buses, bus shelters and Go Transit.
 
Visit  FocusedOnRecovery.ca to meet some of our patients, and learn more about how a donation can help those suffering with mental illness to succeed in reaching their goals.
