CAMH services are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) so there is no fee for anyone holding a valid Ontario Health Card. In some cases, individuals studying in Ontario from abroad may have insurance that will cover the cost of services. For more information about fees for service you can speak with staff in the Finance department by calling 416 535-8501 (or toll-free 1 800 463-2338) extension 36148.
If there is a crisis or emergency situation then he can go to his nearest hospital or call 911 for assistance. The CAMH Emergency Department is located at 250 College Street (on the north side of College and just east of Spadina). The CAMH Emergency Department treats individuals in crisis age sixteen and older (without a referral) and it is open 24 hours a day. Anyone walking into the Emergency Department at CAMH will be assessed and staff will look at which level of care should be offered at that time (e.g. if there is a need for admission, short-term crisis support etc..). Emergency services will treat an individual even without a valid health card. Fees for service would be addressed at a later date.
Beyond the Emergency Department, the majority of mental health care at CAMH is accessed by a doctor’s referral. A Canadian doctor would fill out and fax in the CAMH referral form on his behalf. Some services that treat psychosis do not require a referral at CAMH. For more information you are welcome to call and speak with staff in Access CAMH – the front door for accessing CAMH services. Staff in Access can be reached Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm by calling the main CAMH telephone above but instead of using an extension, select option 2 from the main menu followed by option 3.
