At HRI, we strive to foster Anti-Oppression, Equity and Inclusion (AOEI), because we believe living these values is the most powerful way to move social change forward. We work continuously to translate AOEI values into action through our organizational culture, policies and research activities, and to de-stigmatize mental health and substance use issues in our workplace and community.
We recognize that the voices and experiences of people who belong to equity-deserving groups are under-represented in mental health and substance use research. We know that people who belong to two or more of these communities experience unique stressors, discrimination and oppression. Research shows that people who live at the intersection of these identities are at a higher risk for mental health and substance use issues.
We strive to ensure that our research, and our team, reflects the diversity of the society in which we live. We do this through thoughtful and deliberate partnerships with collaborators, people with lived/living experience and service providers across Canada.
