Former patients run hospital's foodservice program
July 8—Not too long ago, patients in the Queen St. mental institution now known as CAMH were barred from the staff cafeteria.
Now, they are running the place.
A month ago, they took over, without aplomb or fanfare, just a new coat of paint, new wood floors, and a new menu offering less grease, more smiles and extra helpings of inspiration.
Every person working here, including management, was a mental health or addictions patient at some point.
