Dr. Tina Montreuil is an Associate Professor in the department of Educational and Counselling Psychology and an Associate Member of the department of Psychiatry at McGill University. She is also a Regular Investigator of the Research Unit of Children’s Psychosocial Maladjustment (GRIP) at McGill. As a licensed member of the Quebec Order of Psychologists and a credentialed member of the Canadian Association of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapies, she practices privately with children and family, focusing on cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness approaches. She has published in several peer‐reviewed journals and has been a lecturer at several international conferences. In 2013, Dr. Montreuil was awarded the title of "Champion" in Mental Health in the "Research" category from the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health. She also received a Beck Cognitive-Behavioural Institute Scholarship in 2014. She completed a CIHR-funded Postdoctoral Fellowship, a multi‐site randomized controlled trial in the McGill's Psychiatry Department, for which she is also a co-investigator, after receiving a 3-year CIHR Doctoral Research Award for devising a manualized cognitive‐behavioral group intervention (CBT) for social anxiety and stigma in first episode psychosis and at‐risk youth.

Dr. Montreuil's current research focuses on investigating the role of belief, attitudes and emotion regulation in anxiety disorders and how deficits at the level of these strategies and affect may interfere with self-regulated learning in a group context, as well as to contribute to the development of psychopathology. Parental socialization of emotions on the use of emotion regulation strategies in children is also investigated. C.A.R.E. Research Group has developed a manualized intervention targeting emotion and self-regulation, as well as executive functioning and metacognition in school-aged children aimed at improving academic achievement and overall social functioning. In addition to developing a Parent-focused resiliency program, her group is also currently developing a Teacher Training guide focused on Resiliency and Mental Health as well as working on various projects promoting teacher mental health literacy. Much of Dr. Montreuil's Research Group activities focus on advocating for the implementation of School-Based Mental Health practices and philosophies. She is currently a member of a number of regional and provincial working groups whose primary aim is to devise a plan on how to implement and promote mental health and wellbeing in schools.
