Mental Health Research Canada welcomed three new members at its latest board meeting as part of its ongoing commitment to grow its board to better serve all Canadians.
“MHRC is a stakeholder-driven mental research organization, and we view our biggest stakeholder as being the one in five Canadians who are living with mental health. So we want our board to reflect our stakeholders, and that includes having board members with wide experience,” explains John Trainor, Chair of MHRC, the only charity in Canada that exclusively funds mental health research.
