Demand for child and youth mental health care has been steadily rising throughout Ontario’s health care system, with the biggest growth being felt in Ontario’s emergency departments.
After officially launching in May, CAMH's Margaret and Wallace McCain Centre for Child, Youth & Family Mental Health is celebrating accomplishments and new projects under way in several clinical and research areas.
Just when a young person being treated for mental illness may need help the most, he or she is often transferred from youth-focused programs to adult services. A new study will track 135 young clients of CAMH and other mental health services as they move through the age 18 milestone.
Researchers at CAMH have identified 428 distinct disease conditions that co-occur in people with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), in the most comprehensive review of its kind.
Heavy users of mental health care have substantially different patterns of health care use than other heavy users of health care, according to new research by CAMH and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES).
