Sheena Taha, PhD
Senior Knowledge Broker


Sheena’s area of expertise include opioid harms and treatment for opioid use disorder; the effects of cannabis use on youth developing brains; as well as stress, coping and well-being.


Sheena Taha finds the most intriguing part of her role at CCSA is the balance between the doing academic research and speaking with healthcare professionals, treatment providers and individuals with lived or living experience about the evidence from their perspectives.

Her ongoing interest in mental health and addictions led Sheena to join CCSA in June 2013. She hopes that her ongoing contributions will contribute to having mental health and addictions viewed and treated in the same way as other chronic illness.

Sheena has a Bachelor of Science (Honours) from Wilfred Laurier University. She holds a Master of Science and a PhD — in both health psychology and neuroscience — from Carleton University.
