Research in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neuroscience is focused broadly on increasing our understanding of factors leading to the onset and maintenance of mental illnesses and addiction, as well as the development and evaluation of new assessment methods and treatment approaches. The overall goal of this research is to improve quality of life and treatment outcomes in individuals struggling with mental illness and addiction. Our research mission is driven by our strategic aims to improve detection, access and transitions, to integrate psychiatry across medicine and healthcare and to advance person- and family-centred care.
