Dr. Caron is an Associate Professor of psychiatry and a principal investigator in the Psychosocial Division at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute. He is Director of the CIHR team in social and psychiatric epidemiology and is developing the first Canadian catchment area in social and psychiatric epidemiology in the southwest of Montreal. Dr. Caron's research relates mainly to the epidemiology of mental illnesses and suicide, the evaluation of mental health services, and the validation of psychometric instruments. His recent epidemiological work has made it possible to clarify the relationship between social support and quality of life in schizophrenics, the economic disadvantaged population, and the general population.
