Fighting for Mental Healthcare in Toronto

Faith shares about her experiences advocating for her own care after depression led to hear leaving her management role at a large bank, only to find no standards of care or structured treatment plans in the mental healthcare system.

“I went to see a doctor… and he had had depression, which I didn’t know. And he leaned over and whispered in my ear: ‘If you’ve never had depression, you can never understand how it feels.’ And that was so wonderful because somebody understood how I felt. But was a one off. So I think that would be very important if once you’re diagnosed, somebody comes in and goes, ‘I’ve been there.'”
