Transferring knowledge throughout the community
Policy research and advising, applied research and evaluation and leadership development are three core strengths that the Rotman School offers to support healthcare organizations in the community.
The Rise Asset Development
Rise Asset Development, with the support of the Rotman School of Management and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), provides microfinancing and mentorship to men and women living with mental illness and addictions who are interested in pursuing self-employment. The Rotman School of Management and CAMH participate in advisory functions, lending their respective expertise for business mentoring and mental health supports and services to the benefit of Rise clients.
