Mental disorders are the leading cause of disability on the planet. There is no longer any doubt that these disorders are among the most prevalent illnesses of our time.
As one of the largest Departments of Psychiatry in the world, we serve as a catalyst for progress, mobilizing partners and resources to improve the outcome of those living with mental illness. By providing the best education and fostering the most innovative research, we are ensuring that the next generation of patients and clinicians will have a better experience.
Our Department integrates the perspectives of diverse institutions, collaborating and innovating with eight fully affiliated hospitals and 11 community sites across Ontario. The Department offers a thriving community to our undergraduate students, MSc and PhD students, residents, fellows and faculty members dedicated to improving the mental health of current and future patients.
In Toronto, the future of psychiatry is happening now; it lives in our Department and promises to be bright and progressive.
