AlgomaU, NOSM U partner to address challenges with mental health, addictions


Algoma University and NOSM University have signed a collaborative agreement to address mental health and addictions challenges in Northern Ontario. The partnership sets the stage for the co-creation of focused research, medical education, and training programs that respond to community needs. The first phase of this collaboration involves the creation of a new Mental Health Research and Training Institute at AlgomaU. “The Institute will expand addictions and mental health research that is informed in treating trauma-related mental health illness through cross-cultural approaches and multi-world views including what we are learning from community wellness in local and global Indigenous communities,” said AlgomaU President Asima Vezina.
