Knowledge exchange initiative to improve quality of research and care for young people Canada-wide
CAMH scientists have created the world’s first model of human brain microcircuitry that incorporates the properties of live human brain cells
CAMH’s Toronto Adolescent & Youth (TAY) CAMH Cohort Study
CAMH, in collaboration with youth, family, service providers, policymakers, as well as health researchers and data scientists from across Canada, is working to build “Canadian Youth Mental Health Insight Platform (CYMHI)”, powered by RBC Future Launch, with support from Power Corporation, and the Canada Brain Research Fund (CBRF). This is a first-of-its-kind Canada-wide cooperative effort between youth mental health stakeholders across the spectrum, especially youth and their families. The result will empower the sharing of and learning from mental health data to better prevent, diagnose and treat youth mental illness in Canada.

An inspiring conversation with CAMH’s Aristotle Voineskos, Dionne Sinclair, and Shreejoy Tripathy and led by Valerie Pringle that showed the power of philanthropy and the infinite possibilities of mental health research.
In October 2021, the Toronto Star interviewed KCNI researchers Drs. Shreejoy Trepathy and Michael Wainberg regarding their article in the journal PLOS Medicine entitled, “Accelerometer-derived sleep measures and lifetime psychiatric diagnoses.” This research study was the first to objectively measure sleep patterns on a large scale in people with mental illness compared to the general population.
The Brain Health Nexus will convene leaders in brain health policy, patient advocacy, clinical care models, research and innovation to design and launch a roadmap for collective action to combat the global burden of brain disease.
The Toronto Adolescent & Youth (TAY) CAMH Cohort Study is a 5-year research study supported by the Discovery Fund that will recruit and follow 3,000 youth over 5 years. The purpose of the TAY Cohort study is to better understand who may be at risk of experiencing certain mental health challenges so that we may better understand how to help and support people experiencing these challenges later on.
In this episode of @lifesawreckpodcast, Kyle Moore talks with Dr. Sean Hill about his work and how it's changing the future of mental health care, and to be honest, at times it sounds like something straight out of a sci-fi flick. Kick back, relax, and take some notes because in this podcast, we're talking about everything from artificial intelligence to sleep and even Italian food.
The World Dementia Council (WDC) hosted a dialogue virtually on June 9, 2021, and discussed the perspectives of leading experts on where the state of data sharing is in dementia. Amongst other international leaders, KCNI's Scientific Director, Dr. Sean Hill participated in the open discussion and reflected on the opportunities and challenges of the Global Knowledge Graph for Integrated Brain Health Research data.
In the June 2021 issue of The Walrus, Dr. Sean Hill talks with writer Simon Lewsen on mapping mental illness, and the quest to trace the human brain.
