Vision and Strategic Pillars


Transforming lives of children, youth and families through discovery, innovation and system change. 
Aligning with CAMH’s vision, the McCain Centre is a hub of clinical research, community partnerships and youth engagement initiatives that brings together researchers and innovators in the field of children, youth and family mental health to:

  • identify and develop evidence-based changes to the way mental health services are offered;
  • demonstrate positive outcomes;
  • implement and sustain the changes through appropriate partnerships, continuing education and knowledge translation; and
  • continuously study the outcomes to feed our findings back into the cycle of development. 


The McCain Centre is unique in that it emphasizes extensive community engagement and partnership to ensure the needs of our target populations are understood and being met and that the centre's findings and knowledge are shared broadly to achieve widespread impact. 

​Strategic pillars

The centre is structured around three strategic pillars: discovery, innovation and system change. These pillars are inter-related – system change both follows from and influences discovery and innovation.
