Mental Health Research Canada (MHRC) is a national, charitable organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of the one in five Canadians — over 7 million people — living with mental illness. We advance mental health research that is problem-solving, cost-effective and usable in the real world, transforming treatments and prevention in creative and collaborative ways. We also consult and partner with other stakeholders, including other mental health organizations, social agencies, entrepreneurs, business and government, to promote knowledge sharing, avoid duplication, and implement best practices.
