Clinical psychology research, innovative research focused on the development and persistence of mental illness in children, adolescents, and adults

The Centre for Mental Health Research and Treatment (CMHRT) supports mental health research that is conducted by our faculty and students in our Ph.D. Program in Clinical Psychology. Accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association, our Program has maintained a stellar reputation over its 40+ year history and we are privileged to attract the most outstanding undergraduates in Canada. As committed scientist-practitioners, the Clinical faculty provide students with thorough training in advanced research methods and statistics. Thanks to the support of federal and provincial funding, faculty and students conduct highly productive programs of research in such areas as the development, persistence, and treatment of anxiety problems, factors associated with atypical cognitive development in children, innovations in understanding and treating eating disorders, the impact of cognitive decline on relationship functioning, and interpersonal processes in psychological treatment.
