The uOttawa Brain and Mind Research Institute is committed to pursuing innovative and exciting brain and mental health research. The Institute's mission is to develop new therapies for neurological and psychiatric disorders by harnessing the brain’s internal potential for regeneration, protection and recovery. In addition, they hope to further implement fundamental changes in patient care by offering more integrated, personalized treatment plans based on findings from our research.

The uOMBRI is committed to overcoming the barriers that exist between research at the basic and clinical levels by helping to coordinate research efforts of its research members at the various uOttawa faculties, resident hospitals, affiliated networks and local research institutes. The uOBMRI aims to enhance the research environment, facilitate access to resources and expand brain and mental health programs in order to best help those in the Ottawa community affected by these diseases and disorders. 

NeuroLogic Physiotherapy is excited to work with the uOMBRI to promote the ground-breaking research that the Institute is engaged in. We will work together to promote awareness and education of brain and mind related health in the Ottawa community. As those that suffer with brain and mental health disorders know, this Institute is much needed as there is still a great disconnect and struggle for patients to get the resources and help needed to live with these conditions. We hope to help Ottawa become one of the world’s top neuroscience centres for the treatment of brain disorders through the achivement of these goals.

Brain Health Awareness Week

Brain Health Awareness Week is a six-day event in Ottawa, hosted by the University of Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute (uOBMRI). Through public engagement, open discussions and knowledge promotion, Brain Health Awareness Week aims to advance public awareness about mental health and brain health as two interrelated concepts. 

The University of Ottawa cordially invites the public to attend these events throughout the week, which will highlight the research that continues to uncover how best to preserve and repair brain and mind functions. The sessions are all open forums and provide an opportunity to learn about, discuss and debate neurological and behavioural illnesses related to the brain.
