Donating to PSAT

You can contribute to the Psychiatric Survivor Archives.

Anyone can contribute materials. Material must have been created by or reflect the perspectives of people who have been or who are psychiatric patients, ex-patients, clients, consumers, survivors, and/or inmates. If you have old files, letters, photographs, newsletters, artwork, or any materials, please donate them! Simply send us a summary of what you would like to donate and we will reply as soon as possible. Lets preserve our history!

You may also make a financial contribution to the Archives by sending a cheque made out to Psychiatric Survivor Archives, Toronto. PSAT is a non-profit organization. Please note that we are not able to provide income tax receipts at this time.

To send us a donation or for more information, email us.

PSAT's Access and Confidentiality Policy

PSAT holds in confidence all information about materials donated to the archives as well as all records of the circulation of materials. PSAT's Access Committee Liaison can provide a schedule for viewing materials (by appointment only). An Access Committee Member will be on site to provide researchers folders they request.

Folder contents are available on our Guide to Holdings. Researchers are asked to maintain the Archive's folder contents in order and in the condition provided. Researchers may photocopy or photograph items for research purposes, but may not distribute them. Access to the Archive depends solely on the availability of Access Committee Members.
