At CAMH, researchers are actively leading and collaborating on a variety of studies in the field. In this section, we regularly highlight some of the latest research contributions from CAMH researchers and their colleagues. Our coverage includes monitoring trends in gambling, gaming and technology use activities and intersections of these activities with physical and mental health, substance use, education and treatment programs, social policy and more.
The CAMH Gambling Policy Framework presents seven principles for a public health approach to gambling in Ontario and gives recommendations for action around each principle. Significant changes in gambling activities and policy have occurred since this framework was last updated in 2014. New updates to the framework are being planned.
CAMH is committed to advocating for healthy public policy in the area of mental health and addictions, including problem gambling. For more on CAMH's public policy work, please visit the How CAMH is Influencing Public Policy webpage.
