The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and the Canadian Aids Society (CAS) is currently investigating the relationship between cannabis use, mental health and HIV among priority populations.

In this study, CAMH will be conducting one-to-one telephone interviews as well as focus groups with members of priority populations within the HIV community experiencing mental illness and who use cannabis. They will be asking questions related to cannabis use, demographics, race, gender, and experiences participants might have had accessing support for HIV, mental health concerns and addiction.
