Reducing Barriers to Mental Health Treatment

LOL 2020 Mental Health Cause

Every year, people of all ages from our community are seeking mental health services at Trillium Health Partners (THP) in ever higher numbers. This means that we have to be agile and innovative to ensure our patients get timely access to care.

THP believes in a new kind of mental health care that focuses on both physical and mental health, and we are investing in patient care spaces and leveraging technologies that enable us to integrate services to offer this care to patients when and where they are in need of it.

Monies raised at Laugh Out Loud 2020 will help fund the renovation of our Mental Health Adult Inpatient Unit at THP to reimagine and redevelop this important area of our hospital. This will include additional bed capacity to improve patient care experiences and comfort. An additional nursing station, as well as more common areas and an enlarged open space, will better support treatment outcomes and enhance work satisfaction for our care providers.

Through community investment and support, we can increase the benefits for patients and their families in the mental health care we provide our community, and keep pace with medical and educational advances. Together, with your support, we will continue to build mental health resources and develop strong community partnerships to address wait times and offer patients urgent therapy and treatment.

By supporting Laugh Out Loud 2020, you are investing in positive changes that will reduce barriers for people in need to access mental health care in our community, improve access, and ensure increased privacy and superior programs for the best care possible.
