Research at the Mathison Centre

Our Research

Our expertise in mental health research focusing on child, youth and emerging adult populations spans the trajectory of development from perinatal and infancy into adolescence and beyond. Our work emphasizes the understanding that negative outcomes can be prevented with early identification and intervention. This emphasis on healthy development and resiliency as opposed to focusing only on pathological states has the potential for enormous impact on reducing the burden of mental health problems on individuals, families and society as a whole.

The Mathison Centre adheres to the principals of an Open Science framework. What is Open Science?
