Our mission at the Douglas Foundation is to unite great minds and build resources to improve the mental health of all, today and tomorrow. Together with the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and Douglas Research Centre, we are focused on gaining a better understanding of mental illness, improving access to quality care, and building hope for the millions of Canadians affected by mental illness.
We are dedicated to identifying new treatments for mental illness through innovative approaches to patient care and science, while sharing our insights with other care providers and the community at large to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Every year, the Douglas receives more than 15,000 patients of all ages through our extensive range of mental health services. By offering our services in both French and English, as well as developing treatment programs designed for Indigenous communities, we aim to make every patient feel safe and welcome on their path to healing.

- Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia
Internationally recognized for the quality of its research, patient care and teaching, the Douglas Institute is dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals affected by mental illness.
