CDRIN: A Mechanism to Bring Change
Despite the burden of depression, investment in research and treatment remains low in Canada, relative to other illnesses. As a result, advances in prevention, diagnosis and treatment for depression are not as advanced as they could be.
The Canadian Depression Research & Intervention Network (CDRIN) will serve as a catalyst for innovation, engaging a diverse spectrum of partners, including those with lived experience of depression, with the goal of bringing about measurable change.
The ultimate outcome expected from a 10-year window of CDRIN and partner activity is “to discernibly improve service delivery and outcomes in relation to prevention and treatment for persons likely to experience or experiencing Depression or PTSD.”
