Dr. Montreuil's current research focuses on investigating the role of emotion regulation, attitudes, and beliefs on the development and intergenerational transmission of psychopathology and how symptoms of mental health problems might interfere with self-regulated learning in a group context and ultimately, educational achievement. Mediators and moderators of emotion regulation and resiliency such as the role of parental socialization of emotions on the use of emotion regulation strategies in children are also investigated. In addition to the universal emotion regulation school-based program called Healthy Minds, Healthy Schools, C.A.R.E. Research Group has developed a complementary parenting program called Parenting C.A.R.E.. In addition to promoting 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 define how to implement and promote mental health and well-being in schools.
