About HRI Talks

HRI Talks are free public talks aimed at powering progress in mental health and addiction. These events will be held virtually, enabling people from across Canada to participate in important conversations about mental health, addiction, and the value of science in finding solutions to these public health crises.

At HRI Talks, we will share new ideas, discoveries, and studies that are helping to transform the mental health and addiction landscape in Canada and beyond. Speakers include scientists, clinicians, researchers, and people with lived and living expertise who are working to address some of our nation’s most pressing mental health and addiction challenges.

HRI Talks aim to connect people to the meaning and impact of research on our daily lives, sparking intriguing discussions about work that is underway right now to find solutions for people living with mental illness and addiction. Talks will be interactive and moderated, and questions from the public are welcome.

HRI Talks are for anyone who shares our vision: No life held back or cut short by mental illness or addiction.
