CAMH Research Strategic Plan 2013-2017

Dr. Bruce G. PollockLetter from Vice President, Research, Dr. Bruce G. Pollock

Transforming Lives Through Research

CAMH set itself bold goals last year with its Vision 2020 Strategic Plan, goals that reach far beyond the walls of the hospital to transform society’s understanding of mental health. 


With the substantial growth of the research portfolio over the past 10 years – we have nearly tripled our grant income to $38 million a year – the next step was to create a research strategic plan that supported this vision.


Our research goals are no less bold. Our commitment is to ignite discovery and innovation, to fulfill a promise of a better quality of life for those we serve and beyond. Aligning with VISION 2020, the CAMH Research Strategic Plan has three interconnected pillars in Brain Science (through the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute), Clinical Research, and Social and Epidemiological Research.
Our five-year plan sets out the key directions we need to take to make an impact, with a strong emphasis on collaboration.
We are implementing this plan from a solid base. Our 124 scientists, plus the hundreds of research staff, students and volunteers who are part of CAMH research, are productive and committed.
Whether they are working face-to-face with the most marginalized communities in Ontario, forging ahead with major international collaborations or pushing themselves to deliver results using new, cutting-edge equipment, their research is changing our understanding of mental illness and addictions in individuals and in society.  
It is a challenge to capture this vitality in a few pages of a research report. But we hope that reading about a sample of the research underway at CAMH will inspire you to share our vision.
