Dr. Vasiliadis program of research aims to inform decision makers on estimating a balanced mental health care system in Canada that will provide essential information for planning and budgeting services. This with the ultimate goal to adequately fund services for equitable access to evidence-based mental health services. For these objectives, population health and survey data as well as administrative databases are exploited as research monitoring tools that can be used to produce valid and easily available information to adequately fund and plan inpatient and community health services to support evidence-based treatment packages of care. In general terms, the program of research focuses on: (i) estimating the cost of treatment related to the severely mentally ill and those with common mental disorders (depression, anxiety, etc.), which have an important economic and social impact on society; (ii) describe population determinants (predisposing, enabling/impeding, need factors) of service use and (iii) relate health care costs to patient needs, clinical, and quality of life outcomes.
