The H-CARDD snaphot is a modified version of the Research Snapshot template, developed by the Knowledge Mobilization Unit at York University, Toronto. Snapshots are developed based on recent H-CARDD scientific publications and projects, in collaboration with Ontario's Evidence Exchange Network (EENet). EENet is a mental health and addictions knowledge exchange network that connects stakeholders across Ontario. The network promotes the use of research evidence in decision-making, develops targeted knowledge translation products and tools, and supports interactive exchanges.
