Division of Global Mental Health and Related Research Activities
The Division of Global Mental Health within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences was created to explore local and global narratives of mental health inequity. The focus of the program is to seek to understand and ameliorate mental health inequities within our communities and abroad. Program activates are intended to address issues of marginalization, stigma, access, culture, and poverty. At the current time, the Division supports activities that integrate clinical work, education, research and knowledge translation. Collaborative partnerships are also highly valued to study and implement solutions that are sustainable and in which we make long-term commitments. The efforts described below highlight the research efforts that are being done within the framework and support of the Division of Global Mental Health.
