About

The Population Research Initiative on Mental Health and Addictions (PRIMHA) is committed to reducing the burden of co-occuring mental health and addiction issues linked with tobacco in Canada through innovative research that informs population and social change. At PRIMHA, we seek to understand the prevalence and correlates of addictions related to tobacco and other substance use, and mental health issues that affect the general population. We use a population health-based lens to focus on tobacco use co-morbidities including tobacco and co-use of other substances such as alcohol, and cannabis, and co-occuring mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
