Former patients run hospital's foodservice program
Toronto mental health hospital's dining program staffed entirely by ex-patients.
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.
