The University of Ottawa’s Institute for Mental Health Research at The Royal is pleased to invite you to participate in Research Week taking place November 29 - December 3, 2021. 

During this week, we have an exciting schedule of activities planned to highlight the many ways that Research at The Royal’s team of world-class researchers and trainees are enhancing prevention, diagnosis, intervention and innovation in the mental health and substance use health space. 

There are many ways to get involved:
