Welcome to the Innovation and Scale Up Lab (ISU Lab)

The ISU Lab's mission is to examine and advance evidence-based and implementation-sensitive approaches within school mental health, and to mobilize both research and practice evidence to enhance quality, consistency, scalability, and sustainability in Ontario schools.

To move this agenda forward, through the ISU Lab we:

Seek out promising research and practice examples

Partner with key stakeholders to ensure that proposed innovations meet a clear and specific need

Study innovations to ensure that promising approaches are evidence-based and implementation-sensitive within the context of Ontario

Share lessons from promising approaches and engage in related knowledge mobilization and dissemination
