Pine River has been awarded our first research grant! The Provincial Centre of Excellence in Child and Youth Mental Health at CHEO has awarded $30,000 towards our program evaluation research.
This is a wonderful opportunity to enhance our research efforts and underwrite some of the costs. The Centre also provides professional support to advance our research capacity. Samantha Yamada, our Research Coordinator, is in the midst of preparing the second interim program evaluation report and we look forward to sharing the results with you. This research grant is tremendously encouraging as we develop this important aspect of Pine River Institute: measuring what we do, using the data to improve what we do, and contributing to building an evidence base for adolescent addiction treatment practices.
