Group discussing work

The recovery journey from mental illness and the maintenance of emotional well-being are challenges that many of us face in everyday life.

Patients struggling with a chronic mental illness or emotional instability due to difficult life circumstances, each have a unique story and recovery process.

Our team works together to meet these needs and support our patients during this challenging time, encouraging them to make their own choices about the treatments that are right for them.

The mental health team at Markham Stouffville Hospital offers the following supports to our patients in attaining mental wellness.
