One in five Canadians will experience mental illness each year, and the remaining four in five will know and love someone who does. That's why Grand River Hospital is proud to play a critical role in both youth and adult mental health care in our community.

We maintain 30 psychiatrists on staff, with 5 dedicated to child and adolescent care. 115 beds are available for mental health care in three inpatient units, including acute child and adolescent care. Grand River also provides specialized adult care, with an average stay of 120 days. A key element of exceptional mental health care is our commitment to working together - through partnerships with our patients and those they love, community based services, and interdisciplinary hospital care teams.

Your gift will help children, teens, adults and seniors receive the care they need to overcome a mental health crises and begin their journey towards recovery.

All donations will support the highest priority needs of our Mental Health care area.
