Archive Access

The Psychiatric Survivor Archive of Toronto is now open. You can find what you're looking for using our new Guide (please follow this link). The Guide lists everything we have surveyed so far.

Once you find something of interest in the Guide, write down the codes above the description. Submit an email request with these codes to PSAT (follow the link). Let us know what dates and times you are available to research your materials. The Archive is located at 100 Charles St. East, near the Bloor Subway Station at Bloor and Yonge Streets in Toronto. The research room is wheelchair accessible.

When PSAT gets your request, we will list dates and times when an archivist is available. Please respond with a preferred date and time, or another request. Once a date and time is found, an archivist will meet you at the Archive (ring the front doorbell for access). They will find your materials and help you with your research. The archivist can make any copies or scans you require (if you agree not to distribute these materials). Please place all materials back in the folder as you found them.

For more information on visiting the archive, or joining PSAT, please consult our Board Manual (follow the link).
