Please find below a special invitation to participate in a Canadian study on vulnerability in mental health and psychiatric research
A group of Canadian researchers is launching a unique study to consult Canadians broadly, including Canadian researchers and patients, on the issue of vulnerability in mental and psychiatric research.
This research study, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), offers you the opportunity to share your perspectives about the wellbeing and potential vulnerability of individuals with mental health or psychiatric conditions. With you input, we can envision informing our policies to reflect the experience and perspectives of a broad array of stakeholders and ensure that research policies and practices respond to the needs of individuals with mental health or psychiatric conditions.
