Through investment in fellows and investigators, the Azrieli Centre is developing, delivering and sharing innovative mental health care to meet the changing needs of a population that has long been ignored by the mental health care system.
Recognizing a skyrocketing demand for services for young adults and their families in recent years, we transformed our Adult Neurodevelopmental Services to focus on increasing access to evidence-based care while maximizing targeted treatments—allowing patients to return to living in the community sooner, where they will have their best chance of living healthy lives.
CAMH’s services include a medication clinic, general assessment clinic, interprofessional treatment, intensive intervention services, recreation therapy, and a new service for patients with autism and mental illness without intellectual disability.
Azrieli Centre investigators and fellows will improve clinical care for this population by training within the rich clinical setting of CAMH’s Adult Neurodevelopmental Services, receiving exposure to a wide-range of services for this diverse population. Azriel Centre research will lead to better treatments and approaches for this population.
