TORONTO -- Canada's largest mental health hospital has been given $100 million from an anonymous donor, with the goal of developing cures for psychiatric conditions that affect almost seven million Canadians.

The gift to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto will create the Discovery Fund to support next-generation scientists conducting research aimed at directly transforming care.

CAMH president and CEO Dr. Catherine Zahn says the money will be invested in fundamental research and clinical innovation to improve the mental health of individuals in Canada and around the world.

Zahn says the fund will enable CAMH to develop the next generation of leading early- and mid-career scientists.
