Cerebrum is a new television series that transports us into the unexplored world of mental health, offering a skillful blend of psychological suspense and police investigation. Henri Lacombe (Claude Legault) is a psychiatrist at the National Mental Health Institute, where he’s just been named director. Day in, day out, Henri’s mission is to ease the suffering of his patients. He’s married to Ann Beaulieu (Evelyne de la Chenelière), a consulting psychologist in private practice. Anne is an upright woman who can be demanding with those she loves. She and Henri have two children: William (Henri Picard), 17, who’s a little too sensitive; and Marine (Marianne Verville), 19, an opinionated young woman who has lately begun to assert her right to reject authority. Henri and Anne are loving parents who, like everyone else, must cope with the ups and downs of daily life.

Mystery comes into play from the opening episode. Anne is supposed to meet Henri for a restaurant meal at the end of a long workday. But she fails to turn up – which, given her punctual nature, is unusual. Henri soon becomes anxious and, within a few hours, contacts the authorities. Anne’s disappearance raises numerous questions. Is someone out to get her? Someone she’s close to? A patient? Or is it someone from Henri’s practice, since he deals with a highly volatile patient population? The suspect pool is deep; the possibilities are endless. An investigation gets underway, led by Simone Vallier (Christine Beaulieu) and her partner Danno Boulianne (Olivier Gervais-Courchesne). The life of the whole family, as well as their friends and patients, will be gone over with a fine-tooth comb. Cerebrum is a gripping, suspenseful story, set in the fascinating and little-known realm of mental health, with all its dark byways.
