Emerging solutions for the mental health challenges of Canadians
While one in five Canadians will experience some type of mental health illness in any given year, 1.6 million report that their mental health needs are not fully met. And the pandemic has only further heightened the need for enhanced mental health solutions and care initiatives.
Launched this January, the Bell Let’s Talk-Brain Canada Mental Health Research Program–a collaboration between the two organizations with $4.19 million in funding–supports the development of innovative solutions to provide effective, sustainable, and accessible mental health care for Canadians.
At The Walrus Leadership Forum: Technology and Treatment, three research team leaders will discuss the advances they’re making in treating mental illnesses.
Join us to learn how scientists are working to address gaps in Canadian mental health care through innovative technology in order to improve the systems available to all.
