About APEAL

The Applied Psychiatric Epidemiology Across the Lifecourse (APEAL) program of research examines a variety of long-term processes surrounding common mental disorders and their treatment, including suicidal behaviour. Our research has a particular focus on early developmental and environmental stressors, and the long-term outcomes of common mental disorders.


Our lab is currently running projects funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the Norlien Foundation, the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute, and the SickKids Foundation.
