How You Can Help

Mental illness touches each of us personally or through our loved ones. We are driven to find new, innovative ways to further our mission to fund mental health research and advance the lives of Canadians.

Make a One-Time Donation

 When you make a one-time donation, we apply your generous contribution to our research competitions which generate outcomes-based mental health research: improving the lives of Canadians.

CanadaHelps issues an online Official Tax Receipt to you on our behalf, and notifies us of your donation. We will send you an acknowledgement and our thanks, as well give you the option to receive future communications that will keep you up-to-date on the latest news and events from our organization.

Make a Charitable Bequest

When you support Mental Health Research Canada with a charitable gift in your will, part of your legacy would include funding world-class mental health research for your loved ones and community. This generosity will improve the lives of Canadians for generations to come. For donors who have already included the Ontario Mental Health Foundation in their will, we would ask you to update your documents to reflect the name change.
