I’m a student

The Mary J. Wright Centre builds the connection between what you learn in class and how to apply that knowledge in a real world setting. We provide students with the opportunity to work directly on real-world child and family-related research projects with our university researchers. We also bridge knowledge learned in class with practical training through providing a practicum in psychology to eligible students. Practicum students assist in providing psychological services to families of Merrymount, work alongside Merrymount staff through their groups and programs and learn to collaborate within a community interdisciplinary team to help address the needs of the whole child.

I’m a researcher

Merrymount serves over 8000 families a year, experiencing adversity, crisis, or transition. Though our partnership with Merrymount we are breaking down the barriers of research to assist in engaging children, families, and professionals working with children to becoming partners in the research process. We can assist in working collaboratively with Merrymount and its many community partners to link your research to the community, assist in recruiting, and provide a direct way in which your research findings can benefit the community.
