Knowledge Mobilization Program

HBHL’s Knowledge Mobilization Program supports projects that facilitate and accelerate the integration of neuroscience advancements into policies or public awareness activities. These funded projects align with HBHL’s vision to reduce the human and socioeconomic burden of psychiatric and neurological illnesses, and improve the mental health, quality of life, and productivity of Canadians and people around the world.

This program is not currently accepting new applications.
