Michael’s Story

Michael had been suffering from panic attacks, but was mostly able to ignore them. He thought they were the result of his regular stress at work. Then one day, Michael suffered a severe panic attack that temporarily blinded him.

With his wife’s encouragement, Michael sought help at Trillium Health Partners. He was admitted to the Mental Health Urgent Response Service (MHURS), where he was cared for by a team of psychiatrists, nurses and social workers.

Before his treatment, Michael has lost any sense of joy in his life. Then staff at Trillium Health Partners helped Michael learn new ways of caring for himself and coping with his fears so he was able to enjoy his life again.

Michael is so grateful for the life-changing care that he received.
