210 King Street East (the Autodesk Building) – Room 225

The History of Madness in Canada/Histoire de la folie au Canada website is delighted to launch a new set of innovative post-secondary teaching tools.

The History in Practice/ Histoire en tête teaching pages have been co-created by academic scholars and community partners with lived experience of mental health. This path-breaking collaboration has resulted in a rich mosaic of stories, analyses and insights, closely connected to community and with a strong public purpose.
History in Practice is an expression of our belief in the power of education to change minds and in the potential that each graduate carries with them as they move along different educational pathways into diverse organizational settings and practice contexts. Integrated into the curricula in a wide array of practice disciplines which train students to work in the mental health field, these teaching materials will foster an appreciation among students about the history of deinstitutionalization and its legacies.

210 King Street East (the Autodesk Building) is located two doors west of the intersection of King and Sherbourne. Room 225 (The Organizational and Staff Development Training Room) can be reached by the lobby stairway or by elevator to the second floor.
By TTC: Take the eastbound streetcar from King Station to Sherbourne, or the Sherbourne bus southbound to King.
By car: street parking on King Street and neigbouring streets; a Green P underground lot on Sherbourne between Adelaide and Richmond: and, a street-level parking lot at the corner of Front and Frederick.
