Welcome to the first issue of CAMH Discovers, a new bulletin about the dynamic and wide-ranging research underway at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. There has been a surge of interest and awareness around mental health in recent years, so it is timely to provide a vehicle to share news about the discoveries and efforts of the more than 110 scientists at CAMH.
Our research is diverse, with three broad aims. We seek to understand the social factors that contribute to mental illness and addictions to drive research, policy and social change. Through clinical research, we aim to improve treatment, prevention and management of illness. Within the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute, scientists are focused on understanding brain structure and function to learn what causes these conditions.
With CAMH Discovers, we will be giving you a glimpse of the work underway, and sharing stories on results that have led to tangible benefits.
Is there an area of research that interests you? Let us know, and if scientists at CAMH are investigating those questions, we’ll try to report on their work in a future issue. Send your ideas and feedback to email@example.com.
