In Canada, 1-in-3 people will experience a mental illness or substance use disorder in their lifetime. We can do better.

If we want to treat, mitigate or even prevent mental illness and addiction more effectively and more reliably, research offers hope.

HRI is a national charity created to drive innovation and applied research that can improve mental health and addiction services in Canada and around the world. We partner with clinicians, treatment providers, and people with lived and living expertise of a mental health or addiction challenges, to ensure that our research will make a difference for those who need it most.  We don’t stop when we publish a research paper. We work to ensure that our research influences policy, care, treatment providers and real people in need.
