The Neural Health Project is comprised of several studies. The first is focused on depression and is underway. Others are currently in development.
The Neural Health Project research team is working hard to develop a program of research designed to document how an Integrative Medical approach to mental illness can positively impact the lives of patients. Thank you to all the supporters of the ONE VOICE event who collectively raised 1.2 million dollars to fund this exciting research initiative! We look forward to sharing more details about the research program, in the months to come.
Neural Health team members are experienced researchers from Family Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, Integrative Medicine, Public Health and Epidemiology and Pharmacy.
