Our Research

We will bring decades of experience funding exceptional research in mental health with us as we seek engagement with stakeholders to determine our future course.

Identifying Research Priorities:

Mental Health Research Canada will listen, analyze and respond to the current mental health needs of Canadians. And our stakeholders – all levels of government, mental health care agencies and providers, charities, corporations and individuals with lived experience – inform and guide us.

In 2018, we will lead roundtable meetings in Ottawa for stakeholders. After the consultation process we will establish and communicate the research priorities of our organization reached through this process.

Why our work matters:

Beyond the toll on quality of life for Canadians, mental illness costs as much as $50 billion to the Canadian economy annually. Despite over 20% of Canadians being affected, mental health-related spending, public and private, amounts to approximately 7% per year.

Mental Health Research Canada draws on a history of fund cutting-edge research. We will continue to support researchers who aim to better understand mental health and improve access and quality of mental health services for Canadians.

Completed Research:

Explore the range of impactful research we fund: from biomedical research on mental illness to developing national mental health indicators to analyzing treatment effectiveness. Our researchers pursue improved mental health outcomes through cutting-edge and visionary work.
