2020 Update

Due to this year's unique circumstances, CAMH Engage has collectively made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s BTC event.


While we are deeply disappointed with this outcome, we all agree the most important consideration is the health and safety of everyone involved. 

Please stay tuned for information about upcoming Education and Awareness virtual events.

The Breakthrough Challenge is your chance to help raise money for

Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. 

Guests cast your their vote for the winning researcher to receive a $10,000 research grant!
