Date:6/13/2014

This news release is available in French.

Montral, JUNE 13, 2014 It is with great pride that the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and McGill University announced today that Dr. Ashok Malla and his team will be leading the ACCESS Canada project, a major Canada-wide, five year and $ 25 M initiative jointly funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Graham Boeckh Foundation (GBF).

Officially launched on Friday in Montreal, the ACCESS Canada project consists of a Canada-wide research network within the recently launched TRAM- Transformational Research in Adolescent Mental Health. Its goal is to use research evidence to bring about positive changes to the way we care for young people (age 11 to 25) with all forms of mental illness. It will seek to fix a gap in health care nation-wide by developing and implementing strategies to ensure more young people have quick access to youth-friendly and flexible mental health services. Its effectiveness will be tested across many provinces. Ultimately, ACCESS Canada could transform the way mental health care is provided to young people all across the country.

As Director of the Prevention and Early Intervention Program for Psychoses (PEPP-Montral) at the Douglas Institute, Professor at McGill University and Canada Research Chair in Early Psychosis, Dr. Malla has developed an exceptional expertise in the field.

The success of the model of early intervention developed and tested in PEPP-Montreal, which integrates service, training and research activities -- has facilitated our leadership of ACCESS. The new five-year project will target all mental health problems in youth and all levels of severity, with special attention to populations at high risk, such as youth who are homeless or living in indigenous
