The Mathison Centre for Mental Health Research & Education is a centre dedicated to advancing research and education on early identification, treatment and prevention of mental illness. The centre is located at the University of Calgary and is based on a close partnership between the Hotchkiss Brain Institute and the Department of Psychiatry. The roles of the centre include the following:
- Funding and supporting international researchers of tomorrow
- Providing a hub for mental health research at the University of Calgary

- Promoting and sharing research findings
Our Centre works closely with academic and community partners in Calgary, across the country and internationally to foster research and innovation to advance the mental health across the lifespan with particular focus on children, youth and emerging adults
Study finds students are more stressed about isolating than the pandemic.
A team of Mathison Centre researchers are pursuing a year-long study to find out how school aged kids (ages 12-18) are coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. Initial results investigating everything from resiliency to their mental health found that while most students in Calgary and Edmonton are coping with the stresses of COVID-19, about half fear the social isolation resulting from quarantine protocols more than the health impacts of the pandemic.
