Event Details

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, join LAMP Community Health Centre on a 5 km walk, celebrating the rich psychiatric history of the Etobicoke-Lakeshore community. The walk will start at LAMP Community Health Centre (registration starts at 9am, & the walk starts at 10am), and journey to the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital buildings.

We will continue passed the Mastercard Centre on Kipling, and head towards the, now named, Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital Cemetery on Evans.  Along the way, speakers will bring the history to life while discussing the importance of community mental health services to those of us affected by mental illness.

All members of the public are welcome.

This event is being held in order to reduce the stigma of mental illness in our community, and raise funds for local mental health support programs including: Among Friends (LAMP Program), the Psychiatric Survivor Archives of Toronto (PSAT), and the Lakeshore Asylum Cemetery Project.
