Clinician Scientist with the Cundill Centre for Child and Youth Depression and a Staff Psychiatrist in the Youth Addictions and Concurrent Disorders Service
Dr. Darren Courtney is a Staff Psychiatrist in the Youth Addictions and Concurrent Disorders Service, and a Clinician Scientist with the Cundill Centre for Child and Youth Depression at CAMH. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
Areas of Research With support from the Cundill Centre for Child and Youth Depression and the Margaret and Wallace McCain Centre for Child, Youth & Family Mental Health at CAMH, Dr. Courtney's research focus is on the treatment of adolescent depression through the use of an integrated care pathway – a collaboratively developed treatment algorithm based on high-quality clinical practice guidelines. He has also participated in a systematic review and quality appraisal of clinical practice guidelines for psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents. He also has a interest in the management of concurrent disorders, where young people are affected by both primary psychiatric disorders and substance use disorders.
Last Giving Tuesday, we raised $100,000 to fund life-saving research at CAMH. Today, we’re aiming twice as high. Donate on or before Tuesday, November 30 to help us beat our goal and drive more progress in mental health.
