Centre for Brain & Mental Health

About Us

The Centre for Brain & Mental Health focuses on building new collaborations across disciplines, programs and services that include Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neonatology, Psychiatry, Psychology, Social Work and the research program in Neurosciences & Mental Health. The centre brings together research, education and clinical activities to drive innovation. 

The clinical component of the centre is formed by Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, with involvement from Neuro-Imaging, Neuro-Intensive Care, Neuro-Pathology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology Psychology and Adolescent Medicine.

The centre’s research component is represented by the Neurosciences & Mental Health program within the Research Institute.


Since its inception in 2007, the Centre for Brain & Behaviour has undergone significant growth and development.  As a core component of the centre's strategic focus, child and youth mental health now features prominently in its activities and collaborations.

Following months of discussion amongst the centre's executives in an effort to better represent our constituents and our focus –– particularly with the recent addition of Psychology and Social Work to our executive committee –– the former Centre for Brain and Behaviour at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) has undergone a name change and now exists as the Centre for Brain & Mental Health.

The Centre for Brain & Mental Health strives to globally exceed its reputation as innovators in paediatric neurosciences and mental health care, through the promotion and execution of interdisciplinary and interprofessional activities both at SickKids and within the greater community.
