As of August 5th, 2022, an outbreak has been declared in CAMH’s Emergency Department, located at 1051 Queen Street West due to staff positive COVID-19 cases. This declaration was made in conjunction with Toronto Public Health, CAMH’s Health, Safety and Wellness (HSW), and Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC). The Emergency Department remains open to new patients. However, please advised that wait times might be longer than usual given staffing issues. CAMH has completed contact tracing for all impacted staff and confirmed that no patients have been exposed.
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health has established a post-doctoral fellowship in Community-Based Research through CAMH's Institute for Mental Health Policy Research. One fellowship position is awarded each year.
The purpose is to provide a post-doctoral fellow with training in the techniques and principles of community-based research in mental health. Applicants can propose research in any area related to mental health and addictions, and can be supervised by any CAMH scientist.
In addition to the usual academic requirements of CAMH fellows, the successful candidate will be required to show that:
the proposed research question is seen as a priority for the community under study
community members and/or organizations will be actively and meaningfully engaged in the research
the research is likely to have a tangible impact for the community.
The competition will be chaired by Dr. Samantha Wells, Senior Director and Senior Scientist in the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research.

The fellowship competition is currently closed. Please check back later for more information.
