Research in the Geriatric Mental Health Program focuses on the causes, assessment, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders and addiction in late life.
Building on its strong clinical services, we consider a strong and focused research program to be critical to our mission to improve the care of older persons with mental illness and addiction in Ontario. This research program focuses on three related areas:
- Functional neuroimaging (in collaboration with CAMH's Research Imaging Centre)
- Pharmacometrics (in collaboration with CAMH Neuroscience Department)
- Clinical research
The overarching aim of the current work is to improve our understanding of treatment mechanisms and response variability, so that we may ultimately be able to personalize care with medication and other treatments and thereby enhance efficacy and reduce adverse experiences in the treatment of late life mental disorders.
