Research at the Offord Centre for Child Studies is focused on child development and finding scientific solutions that will improve the lives, health and development of children and youth.
The Centre hosts a multidisciplinary group whose work falls into a number of themes: (1) child mental health and neurodevelopmental disorders; (2) influences on child health and development arising from early experience, families, schools and neighbourhoods; (3) services and interventions for children with mental health needs; and (4) knowledge translation, community connections, and partnerships.
Through collaboration across fields such as child psychiatry, psychology, epidemiology, pediatrics, policy development, social work, and nursing, the Centre’s aim is to better understand children’s mental health problems with the overall goal of improving the lives of children and youth.
