The Faculty of Health Sciences currently has two affiliated research centres:         

  • Centre for Applied Research in Mental Health and Addiction (CARMHA)
    This centre develops knowledge and practices that will enhance the effectiveness, efficiency and quality of mental health and addiction resources. It also promotes innovation, accountability and inclusiveness in order to improve mental health and reduce substance abuse
  • Children’s Health Policy Centre
    This research group integrates education, research and policy to improve children’s social and emotional development and their mental health. Its work addresses determinants of health, problem prevention in children at risk and the promotion of effective programs and services.

"Our work supports and complements the vision of the Faculty of Health Sciences," says director Charlotte Waddell. "Which is to integrate research and policy for public and population health locally, nationally and globally."
