Neurological disorders affect 1 in 10 Canadians of all ages. There is great urgency to identify and implement solutions that create healthier brains. Through innovative funding programs, exceptional people, and by focusing on four interconnected research themes, HBHL will transform how we view and treat the brain. Collaborating with educators and industry, HBHL will develop evidence-based programs that address the specific mental health and neurological challenges of Canadians and promote healthy living through supportive environments.
