We have released our first Annual Report describing milestones and accomplishments achieved during the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
As we reflect on the past year, we are reminded that we have many reasons to celebrate. To name a few:
- Our scientists received national funding to support vital research projects aimed at improving treatment for people diagnosed with addiction and PTSD.
- HRI has established partnerships that will enable us to help military members and veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) using an innovative cognitive training program. Research will be expanded to include police and first responders.
- HRI’s Post-Discharge Outcome Monitoring System (PDO) enrolled nearly 1000 participants. The PDO project, which collect evaluates the long-term impacts of addiction treatment, has gained national attention and will be used to inform care across Canada.
- HRI established a new Strategic Plan to guide our growth over the next five years as we work to build a national enterprise with a more robust research program.
A New Look for HRI
As HRI embarks on a new and ambitious phase of growth, we are pleased to launch a new brand identity that reflects our sharpened focus on building collaborative networks to bridge research and practice. You will notice that the 2016-2017 Annual Report incorporates our updated branding.
Our new logo signifies our unwavering commitment to making connections and finding solutions. Our icon uses an upward trend line, symbolizing improvement and transformation. Other visual elements, such as brand colours and imagery, represent calmness, hope, strength and impact. The logo places emphasis on the word research, because research is the foundation on which our organization is built.
