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

COVID study school kids

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.
