The Jean Augustine

Chair In Education, Community and Diaspora

Founded in 2008, the Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community and Diaspora is one of only two endowed university chairs in Canada dedicated to research and knowledge mobilization endeavors on Black and African-descended communities.

In recent years, the Chair has become a Research Hub accessible to community agencies and members, informing policies and programming across Canada. One of the key examinations is looking at how the educational system affects individual achievement of scholarly and professional ambitions for marginalized youth. The focus remains on advancing access, equity and inclusion in education for Black and other racialized communities.

Fully funding the Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community and Diaspora will ensure that the work to address the structural inequalities impacting Black and other racialized communities will continue in perpetuity.

Why Support CAMH Change Agent Program

Unlocking the mysteries of the brain, finding new ways to treat people with life-altering challenges–or prevent them in the first place. Advocating on behalf of those who have been underserved or ignored by the system for too long. Eliminating the stigma associated with mental illness. These are not easy challenges to solve.
But together, we’re rising to meet them through hard work and a commitment to make the most of every dollar generously donated to CAMH. By minimizing expenses and investing wisely, we’re funding breakthrough research, building new facilities and shining light where only shadows existed before.

One in five Canadians experiences mental illness in any given year. That means someone you know is affected–a friend, a colleague or a family member. By becoming a Change Agent, you are letting them know you will be with them every step of the way on their road to recovery.
A life-saving recurring monthly gift to CAMH will immediately fuel world-leading discoveries in brain science and clinical care, improve public awareness of mental illness, and support the most urgent hospital needs.
