CAMH Engage Breakthrough Challenge Videos go live!

Vote Once, vote twice, vote every day!

Breakthrough challenge videos now live
After much anticipation, this year’s CAMH Engage Breakthrough Challenge videos are now live on the CAMH Engage Breakthrough website.

This year’s Breakthrough Challenge features four of CAMH’s most promising young researchers: Dr. Stephanie Ameis, Dr. Allison Crawford, Dr. George Foussias and Dr. Arun Tiwari. Each researcher has something unique to offer that is bound to resonate with the CAMH community.

Dr. Ameis’ research investigates alternative treatments for young adults with autism that show promise in improving executive function. Dr. Crawford is working with Northern communities to increase access to equitable and effective mental health care. Dr. Foussias is using virtual reality to develop a diagnostic and personalized treatment tool for patients with schizophrenia. Dr. Tiwari is working to reduce side-effects for patients with schizophrenia through a personalized approach to medication.

Your votes will help determine who will win this year’s first-prize grant of $10,000 toward their research project – generously supported by Jim and Sandi Treliving. Watch the videos of the researches explaining their work and then vote for the project that speaks to you the most.

You can vote once per day until the polls close at 5 p.m. on October 30. Votes will be tallied and the two finalists will debate face-to-face in an exciting finish live at our event.

This year’s finale will be held on November 5 at Second Floor Events, 461 King Street West.
