How You Can Help

Make a donation

Your donation to The Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids through the SickKids Foundation supports our development of a program of research to improve knowledge with respect to child and youth mental health and support better outcomes.

It also offers us the means to implement specific projects designed to address particular areas of need that are not directly covered by our public funding.

Our sincere thanks to our generous donors and their special interest in child and youth mental health.

Volunteer

Our volunteers enrich the services we offer to our clients and families.

Introduction to Volunteer Program

Our Centre values the participation of volunteers in its programs and services. Being a volunteer is a great way to give back to your community and to develop your own potential. Our volunteer program offers opportunities both within our client services and some of our research and administrative functions.
