The Centre for Research on Employment and Workplace Health (CREWH) at CAMH is built around four research streams: epidemiology; prevention and promotion; diagnosis and treatment; and disability management of mental disorders at the workplace. It has a strong emphasis on applied research including evaluating the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of workplace interventions and policies that affect the workplace and workers. CREWH researchers are involved in projects that examine the impact of work on people with mental illness as well as work’s impact on mental health.
CREWH also seeks to build research capacity in this area. As such, training and mentoring students from a variety of disciplines are also CREWH’s missions. CREWH recognizes the contribution of work and the workplace to quality of life, and understands the importance of knowledge exchange. We are committed to collaborating in partnerships with stakeholders in different sectors and to sharing information with these stakeholder groups. Many projects are partnerships with community partners including employers, unions, workers, occupational health, clinicians, providers and insurers.
