Situated at CAMH and the University of Toronto, SAMI is a training centre for research for the study of the social determinants of mental health and addictions issues and problems
. Our objective is to establish a growing network of international researchers who conduct investigations that lead to evidence-based practice, as well as prevention and promotion work to support mental health.
SAMI Training Program
The Social Aetiology of Mental Illness
is a CIHR funded strategic training initiative. This is a year long training program where fellows learn about and research social factors affecting our mental health while receiving first hand mentorship from senior scientists and developing their own research profiles. At right, watch the video of SAMI Principal Investigator and Training Director Dr. Kwame McKenzie on why you should apply to the program.
