“GH-CCMH is an integral part of child and youth mental health in the GTA. In my role as Clinician Scientist, I’m dedicated to highlighting the cutting-edge innovation taking place at the Centre by working directly with clients, their families, community leaders, and clinical staff to focus research questions from the stakeholders’ perspective, fill service gaps, and improve overall outcomes through the use of rigorous research methodology. Together we can understand what works and what doesn’t work and the mechanisms underlying each; this will lead to future treatment innovations and strategies aimed at overcoming barriers of service delivery to those in at-risk and underserved communities.”– Dr. Amanda Uliaszek, Clinician Scientist, The Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids (GH-CCMH)
