National Prize Challenge to address Youth Suicide
An IAM & Mental Health Research Canada (MHRC) Collaboration
How do we support our youth to be more resilient and prevent incidences of suicide? That was the impetus for the partnership between Mental Health Research Canada (MHRC) and the Institute for Advancements in Mental Health (IAM) and the creation of the first-ever Canada-wide Mental Health Innovation Prize focused on reducing youth suicide.
Supporting research/innovation to build youth resilience and combat Canada’s national suicide crisis
Launched in fall 2019, the Innovation Prize attracted unique solutions to address a long-standing mental health crisis: that suicide still remains the second leading cause of death for young people in Canada.
Our 2020-2021 prize recipients will be announced soon.
