In order to ensure the ongoing safety of our patients and staff, please note that CAMH is maintaining the requirement for universal masking of staff, patients, visitors/essential care partners, contractors/vendors at CAMH. A hospital-approved mask will be required to enter into our buildings and in all common areas. Further, current screening stations and protocols are also being maintained and there will be no change in the requirement for anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or exposure risks to not enter the hospital.

Learn from the Cundill Centre Speaker Series
The Cundill Centre Speaker Series is a monthly one-hour lunch and learn session. Through the Cundill Centre Speaker Series, we:
Share research information about child and youth depression that is relevant to clinical staff/trainees;
Encourage knowledge-sharing between clinical and research staff/trainees; and
Promote understanding of the benefits of and opportunities for integration of clinical practice and research activities.
Sharing Knowledge Through the Cundill Centre Conference
On June 4, the Cundill Centre once again welcomed psychiatrists, family doctors, clinicians, policy makers and others working in child and youth mental health to gather and learn from one another at the New Directions for Adolescents and Young Adults with Depression: A #CundillatCAMH Conference.
In his closing remarks, Dr. Peter Szatmari, Director of the Cundill Centre for Child and Youth Depression, thanked participants for their collaboration throughout the workshops, and spoke of the importance of standardized treatments moving forward.
“All medical conditions – diabetes, cardiovascular disease or cancer – are becoming more and more standardized in the way they’re treated,” Dr. Szatmari said. “There’s no reason why we can’t do that also when treating adolescent depression.”
We look forward to sharing more in-depth highlights from the Cundill Conference. In the meantime, you can view presenters’ slides from the event below:
